Thatīs vicious stereotyping, my cams are nice and shiny because I donīt bother to place them. Some of them are Russian as well, not those modern Ukranian things.

Do you mean wealthy new trad climber identification? When I was a new trad climber, I had to buy all my stuff piece by piece. Yesterday I realized that most of my nuts are bootied.

- Insists on practice trad falls (especially in forums)
- places no pro in easier section of a climb
- is obsessed with anchors, e-bay and reading accident reports

Ah, I see. That's what this is all about. I'm surprised you haven't posted this in the accident and injury board.

this post, and those similiar to it, should give you an automatic 10pts in the "is this climber a douchebag" thread.

Yeah, it's a stereotype that doesn't always fit reality.

But I've gotta tell you, I *love* the fact that in climbing, if I'm using older beat up equipment it's not assumed that I suck. Quite on the contrary - the guy who shows up at the crag with the most beat up looking rack is the guy everyone watches to see if he's going to be a superstar.

You take a ski lesson with an older pair of skis and boots, the instructor will treat you like a retarded hillbilly who can't tell a mogul from a turnip!

GO

Hey now thats pretty funny. I did feel ackward after I bought a set of FCU's. All shinny.
I don't know about ski instructors, but I love that when I get on the ski lift I'm practically a celeb. All the kids get a kick out of my old straight skis.
