HOW TO TELL IF YOUR GIRLFRIEND IS A CLIMBER

this post originally appeared on Hilary’s blog, The Gription.

Do you find chalky fingerprints around the house? Is your girlfriend strangely unphased by carrying super-heavy backpacks? Here are 14 telltale signs you’ve got a climbing femme on your hands:

  • She can build a bomber anchor in 90 seconds, but spends 45 minutes in bathroom trying to do a smoky eye.
     
  • She has gotten into a pullup contest at a party.
     
  • Her closet has more puffy jackets in it than pairs of high heels.
     
  • When she talks about her rack, she’s not talking about boobs.
     
  • Same thing with jugs.
     
  • Also, “nuts.”
     
  • Before she bought her car, she laid down in the back of it to make sure it was big enough to sleep in.
     
  • She’d be stoked to get a gri-gri as a Valentine’s Day gift.
     
  • She doesn’t need help opening that jar.
     
  • She’s really only interested in that guy’s van.
     
  • You’ve caught her crimping a door frame.
     
  • When clothes shopping, her mantra is: “no hood, no good.”
     
  • She talks about walls of buildings in terms of V-scale.
     
  • She’s tried to explain the Yosemite Decimal System to her grandma
