ha, leave it to SF to turn every thread into an existential debate... My favorite climbing pants ever are the long, dorky Gramiccis with the diamond crotch. Narrow leg openings. I don't like wide legs b/c I can't see my feet. I bet a small would fit you well, even if they're not stretchy. I have climbed in jeans (chafing!) and surplus German army pants with drawstring legs (hot! and too many pockets to snag), but both are cheap options.
