They're great for ice climbing, walls and chimneys. Old guys are much, much smarter than boys.

Maybe its belayers who won't drop them enough for a soft catch, so they are smacking into the wall and cracking their knee caps after they have just finished hanging on the rope to take all the stretch out and then coming off three feet above the protection they were hanging from.

it's not just old guys...
anyone who spends a lot of time on their knees wears knee pads...The knee pads tell me just how MUCH they like spending time on their knees heheheheh!

maybe those old guys are having more fun on their knees then you could ever imagine.

why would any guy want to spend that much time on his knees?!?!

Bet their hair is super messy too ;)

Who makes those neoprene rubber knee pads for awful-widthing? Think they had 5.10 C4 rubber on the front? Was it 5.10? Those were pretty dang sticky in OWs.

Can I still get a pair? They seemed to fit old guys, young guys, women, girls and dogs.

Bruce, it's that climbing shoppe in Boulder. They take grandmas neoprene support hose and put C4 on it.
