I remember climbing wearing a pair of bright pink lycra tights with the names of Beatles songs scrawled all over them with blue marker pen. My girlfriend was on a Beatles binge at the time. I think it was 1988.

Just having retained that memory is embarrassing.

Now I mostly climb in Hard Yakka work pants. I ended up with about six pairs from when I worked for Country Energy some years ago. They are reasonably hard wearing and have one cargo pocket which is useful for stashing a beanie and a head torch if multi-pitching. I'm down to my last pair.

I think the pants now sold in work wear stores crap all over so-called specialist climbing pants.

I think something like these would make great climbing pants and they are pretty cheap.

Two cargo pockets, reinforced knees and arse, stretch material, belt loops would fit the bill for me.

I climbed in jeans for a while until RodW told me only boulderers climb in jeans and threatened to never climb with me again.
