1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Also stay away from "traditional' gym clothing, you will look like a tool. Climbers view themselves as very separate from traditional sports. Avoid the following brands like the plague, unless the clothes are beat to hell: Nike, Under Armour, Team Sports Clothing, Reebok (especially the Crossfit garbage), and especially those vibram 5-fingers (that should be a given on this thread).

    If you are going to buy climbing clothing use the same maxims you would for your dress clothing-quality is expensive but it lasts. For shoes try to buy european shoes (scarpa, la sportiva) or American (five ten, newer evolvs), for approach shoes get the expensive ones made in Europe, for climbing clothing buy work-wear or thriftstore clothing. It is obvious but clothing with big corporate themed logos (including BD!) are lame.

    I wear bown robert geller jeans (stretch) and bauhaus/joy division tanks I cut myself. Shoes I have La Sportiva Solutions (love hurts) and Five Ten Anasazi Arrowhead (bit less aggressive) I live in boulder (mecca) and most guys at the gym wear skinny jeans cuffed and shirt optional (show off your awesome lats) Outdoors I will wear stretchy patagucci pants warmer, lighter and waterproof.
