Well, I'm from Minnesota and he came and played at my highschool 32 years ago. Oops, am I dating myself here?

Cool. BTW I used your sig quote this past summer when I had to give an after-dinner speech for a work function. Thanks.

Thank Winston Churchill--and thanks for reminding me to put the cite back into my sig.

Leo Kottke is awesome. I like the new stuff he's been doin w/ Gordon lately too.

To the OP, I wear what is comfortable. Usually my old clothes. So if you ever see a guy in an faded "Where's the Beef" t-shirt and acid wash shorts, come and say hello. :wink:

As far as I'm concerned, the "climber" look is that of the old dude (or dudette) who looks like he's weathered so many climbing experiences that the toils of everyday life have become insignificant. Old ragged clothes, swollen and battered hands, and the thousand-yard-stare that is only otherwise known for men who've spent time on the front lines of military combat.

Kinda like this...
http://www.rockclimbing.com/...mp.cgi?Detailed=2038

the stare that you mentioned...totally true!! a comfortable in his own skin look...not really worried about what others think...dressed for practicality and function.

Ok, let's get one thing straight first. Women almost always look good while climbing & need not worry too much about fashion. I don't know, maybe it's the smudge of chalk on their face that does me in... but bottom line is women need not read this forum.
Guys on the other hand, have you forgotten the 3 basic rules of climbing fashion? 1) Put on bennie. I don't know what it is about the bennie that magically makes you a better climber, but it seems to work at temps. over 115' F. I don't care where you are or what time of year it is, you put on your bennie to look cool. (This rule is null and void in a gym). 2) Roll up cuffs on pants 3 times. Not 2, not just once, and NEVER 4... 3 times. Do this about the same time you are putting your chalk bag on. 3) Most important, RIGHT before you attempt a climb you remove your shirt. Now, there are a FEW exceptions to this rule being if you don't have at least a 4 pack, if you are naturally as pale as I am... THESE ARE THE ONLY 2 EXCUSES YOU GET. I don't care if it is 30 below you are going to remove your shirt and you are going to look better for it.
The above only applies if you are on rock (alpine and ice, please ignore), but if you follow my simple rules you will look great... just like everyone else on the rock.

I'd have to agree with everything Galt said, except the stuff about bennies. Last time I went climbing I took a bunch of bennies and literally flew up the crag, except I was so wired I couldn't see to belay anybody. Needless to say this drug doesn't make you cool.

This is the NEW trend for climber. Follow this method and you will send V10 just like Curt.

If you know and have spoken to the man in the black and white picture, then you might be a dirtbag climber.

If you want to let everyone know that you are one of those supercool die hard heroes that actually climb mountains, you dont need to actually clkimb hard, you just need the climbing ZtyleŽ
Just dress like i do in this picture
http://www.rockclimbing.com/...p.cgi?Detailed=47291
Harness, backpack, crampons and an axe will enable everyone to see that you are [cyan]c°°°l[/cyan]. And the agression coming with a sharp axe will tell everyone not to fool you, since you are a hell of a sharp guy.
but best of all, chixx totally dig such climber guys. They just have to look at you if you pass by them while they are sipping on their proseccos in an "In" CafeŽ, and if they look at you (admiring of course) you just ask "wanna see my nuts?".
They will turn red, but then you just explain what nuts are and pull out your size 000 RP and tell them how cool you are, hanging your life on such a small thing. They will totally love it, and invite you to have sex with them.
And dont forget to put in climbing music while you do them. Leo kottke is nice musik (esspecially "ice water") but its no climbing music! Put in a mixtape, alternating ultra hardcore fast scandinavian death metal with weedy reagge music. that will bring them to the edge.

welcome to the [cyan]c°°°l[/cyan] world of climbing.

My friend, you need to clip a nalgene to your backpack with a biner, STAT!

*Nalgene should be replete with stickers of climbing gear companies.
