@addygkruse I also just wanted to point out that based on your photo it looks like the rand of your shoe is pretty worn down and the seam that connects the sole to the toe of your shoe is also starting to separate. Regardless of the hole in the toe, once a shoe reaches this point in its rand/sole, I would suggest re-soling it. Left in this condition too long, the shoe can reach a point where it is no longer able to be re-soled.

Also, here is the link to the website for Onsight Resoles. Ian is a rad dude and a great re-soler. He has re-soled all of my climbing shoes and did a fabulous job on all of them. He is currently accepting mail-in orders due to COVID-19.
