The Great Debate Is Climbing Sexy?

How about this (below) then, for a poster submission;

'Team Captains For & Against aka a dress rehearsal of the part' ?

Oh yes, those photos certainly reflect their sides of the debates.

Are they your photos IdratherbeclimbingM9 and can we use them, huh, huh?

You must be mistaken... I am debating that 'climbing ISN'T sexy'.

>Are they your photos IdratherbeclimbingM9 and can we use them, huh, huh?

As much as one would like to think that Ado was getting his kit off in front of the camera for M9, I'm afraid to say that both pics belong to me (and Ado). Feel free to use them.

Debating already?
Do blokes normally get their kit off for you when climbing 1st ascents nude&barefoot, if it isn't sexy?
I shall have to ask mikl's opinion about such activities ascents!
Heh, heh, heh.

Beat me to the reply... I should have expected as much from 'he who wrote the book', as I am not good at that sort of thing,... slowaidclimber-andallthat...

For full disclosure; the Ado one was a 'still' I ripped from simey and Ado's recent Goatfest entry, as published on Chockstone.
The other is also ripped off simey (as published by him on Chockstone), in an excellent thread a number of years back; and ACF, you should ask him about the very funny story behind it!

Another couple of photos from the Chockstone archives...
(2007 Climbing Festival actually!)

As an aside; around that time simey was spreading a rumour that Ado was going to free-climb Ozymandias wearing that Borat inspired mankini...

~> And again, photo credits go to simey, unless he ripped them off from somewhere else.

This is what hipster had to say about that clothing some time afterwards...
