If I were to see a topless female climber doing this I'd stay the hell away, thats some scary stuff.


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


BUSTED... LMAO
\:D/

IT WAS ONE VIDEO :lol:

Sorry, I was watching womens shotput the other day and for some reason envisioned them being good climbers. If you saw it, you'd understand.

Not sad at all. No need for a bra, no need for a shirt. Other than Chris, I don't think anyone here would have a problem with that. :wink:

Certain criteria have to be met before we issue a ticket however.


Where can I find a sticker for my climbing helmet?

So much win in this thread.

First, that photo of the "climber" is clearly an about to get naked photo shoot. You can find many of these examples abound on the interwebz. Just turn off the Safe Search feature on your Google image search and type in something witty.

Second, as a climber I have definitely gone without a shirt when it's hot out. I'm not so much ripped as much as emaciated looking. As a result, I guess it looks like I have muscles. I do it because I hate being warm, and since I'm generally in poor aerobic shape, I'm warm a lot. However, you should know that a lot of us non-jock type climbers are tongue-in-cheek about the suns out guns out rule, and shirtless climbing is often associated with plenty of self-deprecating humor about our bodies.

Also, the non-climbers who complain about "grunting" of climbers should know that climbers find it just as annoying and laughable to hear you complain/whine about "CLASS 3/4 ZOMG WERE GONNNA DIEEEEEE!!!! IS CLASS 3 AND 4 HARD?!?!?!! WHAT DO I DO WITH MY HANDS!!!!!! OMG THERES NOWHERE FOR MY FEET!!!!!"

Thank you, thank you. =p

So with the 14ers Fall/Winter/Spring/Summer/Gurlz/Boiz gatherings why not have a 14ers Topless Gathering? A mini contest during the gathering could be for best/worst tan line.

Obviously, limiting the number of Y-chromosome attendees would only be beneficial to the aesthetics of the event...

Also - some chest hair flair may need to be included
I have been to the top of the mountain, and it is good

I cheese graded my nipple on a 15 foot fall (on limestone) and it did not feel too good. Kind of ripped it open a little bit.....I am still without a doubt a shirtless climber. Even on ice sometimes. I just hate wearing a shirt when it's really hot.....Matter of preference....Most rock climbers go without in the summer...Usually just the guys though #-o
