You may have noticed that there's a trend to wear more and more fashionable clothing when climbing.
Just go into a mountain store and you'll find a piece of climbing clothing for everything: bouldering, alpine climbing, whatever.
While I'm not particularly a fashionable guy, I do enjoy a good pair of pants to wear during my redpoint attempts. So I figured to share with you this cool infographic and video made by Tristan Higbee on his Daily Climbing Tips blog.
He discuses how to choose the perfect climbing pants:
- Pay attention to fabric - synthetic light fabrics that wick moisture are preferable (even though there's a tendency to wear cotton as well - especially among bouldering enthusiasts)
- Choose zipper pockets if possible - you may wanna carry small important items with you (such as a printed top or a candy bar
- Get the right fit - that's something each of us should decide for ourselves what it means. The point is you don't wanna trade your ability to move for looking good.
If you're also a blogger and wanna learn how to blog like a rock star, you should also check out Tristan's main blog - BloggingBookshelf.com where he teaches blogging tips for smart people. He's got incredible quality content - that's my vote for him!
Cheers! And if you get pumped during your ascent, shake, chalk and hope a jug will follow!
