    but i do love to climb wearing socks! people give me grief for that constantly but when it’s cold, i don’t really care :) i can’t climb at my limit in low temps anyway (cause i’m a sissy, most probably…) so i don’t need to wear sharp shoes! and even indoors it can be soooo cold…

    Hey… now if its below 20 degrees out and there is snow on the ground… you better believe I am wearing socks with my climbing shoes… But the gym is def a no-no.

    Oh. My. Gawd. I LUV this. I also think it’s sooo ridic when the gurls on my team wear jewelry when they climb.

    This is kind of mean-girlish :(

    Part of the reason I love the climbing community is because it generally isn’t like that.

    Can we just be glad that our favorite sport is enticing enough that lots of people want to try it, and be a welcoming, supportive community? If you see someone doing or wearing something unsafe, give ‘em a friendly heads up! Otherwise, let ‘em rock their own style.

      Kate – I think you’re missing the point… The joke is on the mean girls.

      Let’s break it down: this is mockery of a common cultural practice amongst the wider western world. go to any grocery store checkout line and you’ll see it in >50% of the magazines. it’s FUNNY in this context because they’ve applied something that DOESN’T belong in the climbing world TO the climbing world. I’ve got a hunch that the CXC ladies could care less what I, or you, or anyone else actually wear out to the crag/gym. However, they probably get a kick out of celebrity gossip and decided to turn it on it’s head.

      Does that help?

      pretty sure this article is tongue-in-cheek kate. :) we’ve all done/do these things (well maybe not the swim fin boudering) and it’s fun to poke fun at ourselves. i hop on the bouldering wall with my harness on all the time because i’m too lazy to take it off after routes.

    Haha! This was a good laugh. It’s good to be able to laugh at ourselves. I remember giggling at people who taped their hands so much I couldn’t see skin or who wore gloves climbing. Then during my first trip to horse pens, after shredding my skin down to blood, guess who over loaded every finger with tape? Me! I probably would have even said yes to gloves if I could have managed to climb with them. Haha…Good times :)
