I think the part of your comment that rings true is that you've climbed practically nothing compared to him. I'm guessing you haven't climbed with too many people who are climbing in their 70s-tape, knee pads, trekking poles, comfortable harnesses-many older climbers have figured out ways to protect themselves and make life more comfortable, which aren't in vogue with the 19 gram carabiner-Arc'teryx harness set. I have hope to one day have half the climbing resume that Jorge has. So, yeah, he's wearing tape because he's putting up routes like Armatron in his 70s. That's the reason. Feb 28, 2015
Thanks for the reply. I couldn't have tried to ask it in a nicer way, more then once alluding to my utmost respect of the dude, yet people still seemed to answer as though I were being an ass.
Your answers make sense and thanks. Mar 1, 2015
I agree with you Sarcasm, you asked an honest question and pretty clearly pointed out you were not trying to be rude or sarcastic and John Wilder and Cunninglinguist still insist on being the rude ones. Mar 27, 2016
