Something that's worth adding, just to keep the climbing/underwear continuum from red-shifting too far, is that the first ascent of the buttress on Needle Peak (second photo from the top in the OP) was truly badass. John Howe and ?? crashed in from tidewater and climbed the thing first try, a year or so before we were there. It's gotta be at least 4,000 ft of climbing, and as to the approach... Well, we saw it from the air, and it is capital-B Burly.

Alpinism at its purest and rawest.

I had a pair of one piece Stanfield's underwear when I started climbing in 77. They were white though. Sure got hot under those heavy wool knickers. Plus I had a 60/40 anorak from the MEC. The Kendall Mint cake would dissolve in the pocket during alpine rain. Next time I went to use it the Mint Cake had congealed into a solid mess.
Young people don't know how good they have it with all that great modern clothing. I started with stuff that would have been appropriate for the Alps in 1938.
Plus I had an uncomfortable Joe Brown helmet.

Does it count if the climb is approached via Canada?

Man, I bet people in Chiliwack could see those things glowing over the southern skyline at night. So, yeah, it counts.

Well, okay. You bumped it, so you win the prize. I'd been holding this one back, but just for you I'll add a shot of Tami in Red Underwear. Y'all wanna talk about whose underwear it is, or how Tami came to be wearing it, go ahead. Posting the picture is as far as I go, I ain't talkin.


And note that Ms Nikki, behind Tami, is also parading around the mountains in long unders. It's the Canadian way.

Confession Time : I can never hope to be as totally coolio, as scintillatingly radiant, as effervescently erotic in red longjohns like our David.

For those red longgies I'm sportin' there are none other then Smelly Helly Hansen fleece trousers. Heavy. Not unders but, sadly, overs.

I ask forgiveness for the deception.

But that is a genuine GUMBY 50/50 pullover and I"m wearin' it in the Coast Range. Wheeee!!!!

Only in Canada would we elect an underwear king as head of the opposition party. Robert Stanfield was premier of Nova Scotia during the 1960s, and leader of the federal Conservatives from 1968 - 76. One of the better prime ministers that Canada never had, though he came very close in 1972. A nice, witty fellow - and the owner of Stanfield's underwear. The US elects presidents whose families are crooked, even if they aren't themselves(Kennedy, Bush, etc). We go for the flannel man. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Stanfield

The original red underwear thread was at http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.html?topic_id=734687

And you thought Canadians were boring! Later we'll talk about lumberjacks and igloos.

John, you misunderstood. When Tami asked if you'd never heard of "too much information" and talked about using your inside voice, she meant that here inside ST, or at least in the Canadian section of ST, you can never give too much information. What she should have said, just to avoid confusion, was...

"Dude! You got pictures?"

IMHO, two SuperTopo threads on the undergarments of Canadians may be one too many. It may cause people to start asking questions, and whispering.
