Going Climbing Makes Women Fancy You

Yes guys. It's official. It was on the internet, so it must be true. Going Climbing Makes Women Fancy You.

We knew it all along, but this scientific survey undertaken by professionals and then published in the very exclusive journal of confirms our thoughts.

Rock climbing came fourth in the 'Top Ten Hobbies that make people fancy you' survey.

But strangely, it was women who found male climbers attractive, whilst men liked women who did Yoga and who could cook.

hmm perhaps that's because they imagine flowing locks on tanned buff (or whatever the phrase is) bodies in exotic locations. As opposed to the reality of some skinny guy with glasses dossing on the floor of a cave waiting for it to be cold enough for his skin to 'stick' . :D

You have to trad climb.... ask the Perfect One. None of this sport climbing (unless you are Chris Sharma) or 'just' bouldering malarky.

Good, well informed article. Women fancy Tom Cruise in Mission Improbable when he's doing that solo bit. Men fancy women on rocks in lakes. And most importantly? We get to see a photo of what we like, women have to imagine it. Job done.

good point. Mick and Jack, please can we have a picture of an attractive nekkid (or even semi-naked, I don't mind) climber man instead? It would be more suited to the article :-)

Yes, that was what I intended to use, but then as I was browsing, I erm, stumbled upon that image and well, erm. Anyway. What a lovely photograph. Jack
