Just when we thought we could find mainstream wirting about climbing that was palatable....there's this:

So, shoes were provided by manufacturers for free, and weekend climbing trips and other gear were expensed. Probably tax deductions too. Maybe the house in the area!

Why is he hanging from the pin on Birdland?

I mean, I know why *I* hang there; that route has it in for me, and that move in particular. But he's tall. What's his excuse?

How else do you test shoes but to see how comfortable they are to hang in? For my gym shoes particularly, it's a requirement.

Perhaps a photographer that wanted 20 or 30 shots from different positions, angles, and perspectives?

"Why is he hanging from the pin on Birdland? "

To show off the shoes? Look at the position of his feet.
