What's up with you guy's!!!??? It is a truly great shot. The dude is styling the climb! And styling the wardrobe with the shades and old school plaid shirt! And all you peasants can focus on it a stinking sling that isn't even pink to begin with!!!! Obviously jealous bastards. If Ed Webster ever did a Gunks guide this shot would be on the front cover.
losbill, you obviously haven't been to Brooklyn or Lower East Side Manhattan: Plaid? check. Sunglasses? check. Ironic accessory in a form of an old school watch? check. The dude is a bona fide hipster.
You guys should give this guy a break with the Gunks dress code. He is 74 1/2 years old, has been climbing at the Gunks for 40+ years and is my father (though I'll admit that his slings are a little old). May we all be so lucky!!
