Wankers, climbing with a kilt has many advantages. I submitted the following to Twight but for some reason it was not included in his opus grande. I suspect it will be in the second edition.

viz.
1. Climbing with a kilt virtually reduces the condensation problem and reduces fluid loss caused by excessive sweating due to the cooling affect of the wind rattling around your jewels.Thus it is ideal for the fast and light concept.

2. Self Arrest. In a fall on neve, the kilt is swept upwards by the friction on the snow, revealing the one-eyed milk man ( as we call HIM in scotland) which, if properly aroused forms another self arresting device in addition to your trusty ice-axe.

3.Urination: No need for pit zips, patagonia super fly system etc. If you need to go, let gravity do it's work. With Gore-tex gaiters, the time saved can be considerable on a single-push effort in the Alaska range.

4.Gear racking; On big-wall climbs the second when immediately below the leader has a very convenient, shall we say groove to reach up and temporarily inset gear when making those crucial switch overs when speed climbing on the Nose.

5. Aid: the old timers called it combined tactics when they climbed onto the others shoulders to reach a sloper. With kilt climbing the second ,when below the leader can hand jam to reach that crucial hold that will allow a clean aid ascent. The crack is 5.10 thin hands only please and wipes are needed in the haul bag.

I hope this educates you to some of the new wave thinking we Scots are bringing to the game.

RRRRight up your kilt!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I prefer a cheerleader's outfit, with just a bit of eyeliner and lipstick.

I'm going to have to second Apollodorus' comment, but to clarify a little more, I prefer the people in the cheerleader's outfit to be female too. :shock: I think I'll stick to wearing shorts or pants, kilts jsut aren't my style. I very much like the warth and comfort.
