It is always better to resole earlier rather than later.
Firstly we should run through the basic shoe anatomy. There are 2 parts of your climbing shoe.
Sole: The part that covers the bottom of the shoe. This is where the wear will show first.
Rand: This is the rubber that wraps around the toe box and the side of your shoes.
In between the sole and the rand, there is a visible line where the sole was glued. When the rubber below the line starts to thin, you’ll see the sole start to recede. The ideal time to resole is when you’ve worn through the sole but haven’t started to wear out the rand yet. If you keep climbing from this point, you will run the risk of doing structural damage to the shoe as the rand is not designed to take as much wear as the sole. A rand can be repaired but it will cost more than a standard resole. If the rand is very degraded, some resolers will not repair the shoes - usually when there's not much shoe left to repair!
