Tie dye tights. Sorry not a climbing pic! Tough to get climbing pics. The only person i'm ever with tends to be belaying when I'm climbing. So here is a post-climb pic from last November, at PMRP in the Red River Gorge. Just got spanked on a route on the cliff "Chica Bonita." And this is a great reason to not wear tights - the flash.

D'oh!

I remember the 90s when every sport hard man had to wear brightly colored Lycra. Those were the days.

Why don't men wear tights anymore? Jeans are so restrictive and heavy. But maybe it's good so women keep flexibility as our advantage not being good w/ the reach department. And tights on men are pretty vulgar. Ana Tine

Because we all love our comfy Prana shorts and climbing pants too much to be wearing 'package' showing tights anymore.

I never wore the tights. I did, much to my shame, wear a pair of manpris for awhile in the 90s.

I don't really dig climbing in jeans, though. Hipsters these days do, though.
