That photo is amazing on so many levels. My pink beanie always matches one of my three ropes. Rain or shine. And those gloves! I also think you guys are right that he took a page out of the Walter White collection. That being said, it's never a bad idea to pop that shirt off. Or pop your collar up. You never know who is going to be on the trail.

I think they are either "euro shorts" or some cut-off white jean shorts. But they could be tighty whiteys.


I think he purchased the line of underwear seen here in this demonstration video of the best backpack ever!!1!!11!!1``

You've never really stopped even if you feel like you have.

HA! I absolutely LOVE this forum topic! I'm not on here all that often, but I noticed the same thing with all the sans shirt photos and immediately started laughing.....

FINALLY, we found the cheesy male equivalent to all female debauchery!!

Flaunt it if you got it, I say.

You think my insano pecks are a distraction to other climbers? Deal with it. Even I cant keep from staring at my delicious moobs.

Pecks? I prefer to think of mine as a nice solid A - cup.

Also, Flaunt it if you got it - couldn't agree more, I love sporting my less then attractive chest and upper arm hair, as well as, my not so steller abs - essentially its just my reserve beer storage tank.
I have been to the top of the mountain, and it is good

Everytime I see a guy climbing or a video of a guy climbing with his shirt off, his moves are always accompanied by a "ARRRRRRRRRAHG" as if somehow sounding like a barbarian makes him a better climber. If I were to see a topless female climber doing this I'd stay the hell away, thats some scary stuff.
Some rise, some fall, some climb to get to terrapin

So you watch a lot of videos of guys climbing with their shirts off but would run if you saw a woman doing the same thing? :-k
