I was very bored during my lunch hour and found myself reading the ticks for Shockley's Ceiling. I found naked and naked on your birthday to be a recurring theme. I'm expecting this is a Vulgarians thing, but anyone want to explain? Also, anyone got some good stories to tell? I'm prepared to be amused...

The rest merely imitators.

I am sure that Old leachours Perv Benji Chappedlips beat me to it. But I only saw like 6 people who claimed to do it naked. One I would have loved to belay. Jen from Boston! hahaha.

Anyway, maybe it's called Shockleys because uhm, it was a shock the FA was naked? I speculate. Thanks for making the end of the work day funny.

Maybe because William Shockley did the first ascent?

It's hype to disguise the fact it's a mediocre climb outside of the couple moves.

Zoo View at Moore's Wall has been soloed, naked at least once.
Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
