    Default How much do you weigh?

    An impertinent question for those who rope up or spike up trees - how much do you weigh?

    Not impertinent at all Robert. Carrying too much weight is tough on the joints, kind of like making every climb with the 395 hanging on the saddle, not to mention the everyday fatigue factor. 180 for me, been there for about 30 years. I'm very fortunate that I have always been able to eat whatever I want and not gain weight. My work partner hates me for it.

    6'3" 190 on the button.

    Probably 2-210 with everything I take up.

    5'8" at 160 before gear and clothes.
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    I used to be ripped at 185, but I have a gut now and push 215.
