Rock Climbing Photos : Misc : I was told I looked funny

I was told I looked funny

I was told I looked funny

I just showed this pic to my cousin, who somehow got the opinion that I was going for a certain look here, so I have to dispute that theory.

This is the summer of 2002. When we went climbing this day, we had no rope bag or tarp, so I used my shirt to keep my shoes clean while standing at the base of the climb. Because of this, it got quite soaked and muddy, so I borrowed my friend's (bigboulderboarderbinerben's) shirt as a bug defense. He's slightly smaller than me, so if I had worn it as any normal button-up shirt is worn, and tried to climb, all the buttons would have popped and the sleeves would have either ripped, or cut my arms off. Neither situation is good, so I rolled up the sleeves and left it unbuttoned. Who's gonna care at a crag where the closest people are little specks in the distance, right?

Then on the way back down, we were doing a bit of bouldering, and paused on this rock for our designated cameraman, Tom Borland, to take this nice shot with the mountain in the background. Now I am forced to defend myself because this picture is just too cool!!!

Gotta love it!
