First when i saw this picture i thought ok maybe it will be consider some kind of erotic photo, as a photographer i found that people use nudity too often and of course it will mostly be women.
Not enough that this website gave a space to such a photo, which objectify women in a very sexist manner, the comments people wrote here are more then disgusting, if you talk like this to any woman you meet it is actually sexual harassment.
I dont think any of you would have talk like this to your Mom, wife daughter.
I also dont understand how the admin of this website let such discussion be on the website, maybe for some MAN it is seem to be funny, but ask your girlfriends, wives what they think about it and i am sure they wont find it funny.
Just to make things clear i am a male, photographer and also a climber.

Jokes aside.. it was a very sexy picture :thumright made me happy... although I've been told that's not a hard thing to do so probably means nothing..

Just to put that image into perspective, it is indeed a sexy image and is intended to be, but contains no explicit nudity and in fact is based on a Demi Moore cover shot of a famous magazine. It is certainly no more sexist then any Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. (But then again those over sensitive individuals may critisize that mag too)

The model in question actually volunteered for this shot as she is a top athlete and is very proud of being in shape. Oh and she does climb (even with those nails).

The purpose of the shot is simply a fun way to point out men's natural tendancy to focus on what most attracts them and not always on what is intended (in this case the shoes!!)

This was not meant to offend anyone but to simply provide a light hearted (and beautiful) image with a difference. Every image is supposed to elicit an emotion otherwise it is a pointless image.

(Life contains no fear when you are not attached to the results)

For all those going to the Rory Lowther, time to get excited.

i thought the picture was artistic and stylish; but not too sure that it should be on the homepage. the comments however are right up there with the scriblings on public toilet doors. ughhhh. :pukel: :puker:

I'm with mokganjetsi on this one. You're discription of the comments hit the nail on the head. Unnecessary and offensive.

Jeeeez Angryman, lighten up dude !
Force yourself to see the humour in it as it is a climbing website and the people who posted it meant it to be seen as that.....humourous. Hardly offensive in my books, but thats just me.

Monty python used to be banned in South Africa- to offensive. Some things aren't funny and even if you might think they are we won't let you laugh.

Well I'm injured and bored so ha ha.

I don't think any knob would be offended by Stone Nudes. In fact, some may very well give a standing ovation.

Jeez, some of you dudes lighten up please.
Comments are just trash talk, nothing serious about it.
Think pic is not bad at all, and think stone nudes pics are taste full.

Back to "focus the shoes"

The rubber must be .... Sticky

An excellent example of Guerilla marketing.

Back to the shoes.. 'Looks like a tight fit'
