'You look like a climber'
Made me laugh when I heard a girl who used to climb say that, when she found out I climbed when I was discussing taking kids for a climb with anothers dad .

So whats the climbing look?

Skinny as a whippet, boney hands, slight natural over tanned face, Subaru wagon driving, north face top or jacket (perhaps mountain design or Kathmandu), either wearing approach shoes or sandles with an air of a lost Buddhist monk.
Of course I am the exception to the rule. I look more like a world champion darts player or even someone you will see during an ad break with words "call crime stoppers".
Did I mention helmet / beannie hair?

A 'real' climber would not be caught dead wearing Kathmandu like a clueless yuppie. Nothing less than Patagonia, Mountain Hardwear, preferably Arcteryx. And it goes without saying that you mustn't have paid Aus retail for it.

Don't forget the overdeveloped back, shoulder and forearm muscles. Tat/cord/pieces of climbing gear on ankles, wrists, neck, key chain and vehicles etc.

Perhaps in this current time of obesity she was saying you look like you're in need of a decent meal. Lard asses don't climb

I like seeing Australian climbers with Arcteryx jackets and/or single skin tents...........for the same reason that Rightarmbad likes daisy chains!

Do you sound like a climber?

Do you smell like a climber?

Do you feel like a climber?

Do you taste like a climber?
