Guy comes into my work last week to buy new climbing shoes:

[dudebrahvoice]
"Hey, so, like, I was thinking of taking up climbing. I dont want to deal with all those ropes and shit, like I dont need another person or anything, I just want to, ya know, free climb some big cliffs and shit, for the rush. I wanted to know what kind of shoes I should get"
[/dudebrahvoice]

I wasn't sure what to recommend... any suggestions?

Perfect answer right there. And tell him spandex is back in and really, really critical for climbing alone, so he will needs something high visibility....hot pink lycra, etc. so that people can see him and be in awe of his awesomeness.

Something black that will go well with a casket.

Actuall, in my attempt to discourage him, he got pissed and complained to the store manager that I wasn't helpful

Saw a dude in the local weight gym, which now has a little climbing wall. He was on the wall with his weight lifting gloves, trying super hard!!!

When he got sketched he would DIVE ROLL off the wall stunt man style and let out a "whoot!" He would pump himself back up, and literally JUMP back onto the wall. I snorted with laughter.

Sounds like it might be your guy... he would probably be way better if only he had $200 shoes.
