Here's what other sites are saying:
Climb all morning wearing the Sickle Men's Merced Shorts and take a cooling dip in the river when the mid-day heat chases you off the rocks. These shorts are quick-drying with a light, sueded polyester microfiber material that makes a great summer short. Sickle made these boardshorts to meet the needs of climbers on cracks in Yosemite, slopers at Joes, and crimpers in Rifle. The Merced Shorts have a gusseted crotch to allow long stem moves and an 11-inch inseam that fits nicely without ride-up when you're wearing a harness.
