/ Climbing with a moustache
Taches are excellent for cultivating the walrus look when winter climbing as sweat, frost and snot all freeze up into a fine pair of tusks.
Beware the handlebar moustache getting caught in your abseil device though - possibly the second most eye watering thing it's possible to do to yourself.
If you're going for the combed and waxed 'chap' look though you'll want to get some new tweed climbing breeches, and be sure to wear a tie at all times, for the full effect - good show!
Too right, all real men should have some sort of facial hair and then be shaving it OFF for charity.
Our tragic trendy society.
Legend has it that Ron Fawcett once shaved off his tache and could only climb VS until it grew back.
Wont be going down that road again :/
Invaluable for winter climbing--a good moustache provides excellent adhesion to the ice (although a full beard is recommended).

Love the Nick Cave quote, I'm a big fan of his. Even more so since he grew a Hulk Hogan 'tache.
