Whatever pants you choose, always make sure to roll up one leg. It makes you look über cool, like you rode your fixie to the crag even if you drove your beater. I roll up my left pant leg out of irony. It's hip! Steven Groetken

An entire year called and entrusted you to deliver the message? That's really ironic! Super awesome hip!

Either Carhartt's or Arborwear for Trad stuff. I'll occasionally go Prana Mojo shorts ($10 at the prana sale!) for more sporty things. Jace Mullen

Down here in Houston I'm in shorts 8-10 months out of the year, but for pants I've really gotten into the Stretch Zion pants (as well as the convertables). Haven't had them long enough to know how well they'll hold up in the long run but so far, very nice.

Favorite burly/cold-weather pants are some now-discontinued MH Runout pants. Tough canvas with a great cut for my skinny/long-legged physique. Sure wish I could get a few more pairs of these, but oh well.

People buy, "Climbing pants", because they're, "Climbing pants" and everyone KNOWS that to be a "CLIMBER" you simply HAVE to wear, "Climbing pants".


And it doesn't matter how well or how much you climb, so long as you
are wearing, "Climbing pants".

It is the ONLY true way to tell if someone is a REAL, "Climber".



"What brand pants are those?"

"Prana!"

"Wow! You're a "CLIMBER!"..."

Finally! A chance to preach my gospel to the greater interwebs climbing community!

Although I have been laughed at by all my climbing friends once I told them, I prefer jeans sewn with spandex...

yup, you guessed it: women's jeans. Available at Target for about $20. They're not as tough as Carhartt's, but they're durable enough. And they freakin' STRETCH, which is good for me b/c basically flexibility is the ONLY strength I have in climbing.

Mainly cut off shorts in the summer and old kakis in the winter.
Just one a pair of Stonemaster pants from Mad Rock though, and these things are the bomb. stretchy and durable. Hopefully these will last for years to come.

Sweats when its cold, gym shorts when its hot. Cotton or polyester cargo shorts/pants if its a multipitch kinda day.

But as long as my bulge is on display when the sheila's are watchin I'm happy.
