Probably showing my gumbiness here, but I AM a noob so who gives a fuck...

What's the deal with all the jokes about red gear?

Full Disclosure: I own and use a red petzl helmet, though it was purchased for caving.

well, since you are new to the game, err sport, i will answer the question for you. Many moons ago, at a certain crag, those climbers who wore "red" gear: helmets, harness, shirts and so on. were of the mind set that other climbers who wore red as well were looking for a specific type of "partner" if you get my drift. Thats how the red jokes came about. If you are like me and comfy with your masculinity then wear you helmet proudly, or just buy another one.

That's pretty funny. Thanks for explaining.

Also when I said the helmet was for caving, I meant under ground. Just thought I ought to clarify.... Sly
