Check out Rock and Resole in Boulder. They make some very nice kneepads.

I'm assuming you mean for kneebars?

What you need.
1) Thigh support like this
2) Inner tube
3) Contact cement

What you do
1) cut an appropriate sized rectangle out of the inner tube, and then cut another the exact same size
2) bond the two pieces of rubber together and let dry
3)Place the thigh support on you leg and make sure it fits really snug!!! this is very important!!! if its not super sug it will slide right off when your trying to get that no hands rest. If its not snug, you may either want to get another one or cut it up and sew it back together
4) with the thigh support on your leg glue the pieces of rubber to it and let dry.
5) you may want to sew on straps that make it so you can tighten your pad
6) go climb

Or you could clean the sand out of the vagina and suck it up.

Looks like I've been put in my place

I do however have enough sense to know that knee pads are probably cheaper to buy at the store.

Gabor,

Its Joe from Sportrock. Are you talking about kneepads for kneebars or Offwidths. If its for the later, I have a friend from California who I climb with in the Valley who swears by wearing a rough pant material such as Carhardts and reinforcing the inner knee with duct tape. This allows him to jam his knees in without loosing too much sensitivity while keeping bulk at a minimum. As far as kneepads for kneebars are concerned I've always felt that they are a form of aid that I personally didn't want to use, but I also don't climb nearly as hard as you and might change my mind if kneebars became such an integral part of my climbing that I wasn't able to climb regularly due to the scarring from kneebaring sans pads.

A bit off topic but I understand you're living in Europe and know the climbing there well. My girlfriend and I have accepted positions teaching at a college prep school in Pristina, Kosovo. I've been researching about the climbing opportunities near by and have found some stuff but would like to get some more in depth information. Do you know of any good crags in Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, or Croatia that you could suggest I check out. I think I'm a 1 hour bus ride away from Skopje, Macedonia and about 6 hours from Dubrovnik, Croatia. I've read about Petrovik(sp?) National Park in Croatia. Supposedly really good sport up to 500 meters. Hope to hear from you and continue to crush across the pond.

OK, so I've looked all over the place and I just can't find the thigh support thing anywhere. Does anyone know where you can buy those? Would it be in a general sports store, or a more specific one?

the thigh supports are in safeway in between the vagisil and the maxi pads.

This reminds me of a joke:

What did the maxi pad say to the fart?







You are the wind beneath my wings.

There was a line, and you crossed it bub.

You didn't just cross it, I think you blew up a couple states as you jumped 3000 miles across the line. WOW

good to see a sense of humor. i think pads like those would be commercially available from a sporting goods store here in the land of strip malls. not sure where to find them on that side of the drink though.
