Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Make your climbs this summer that much more comfortable with the Index Short from Outdoor Research - climbing-specific shorts that extend just below the knee for added protection from rough rock faces. Durable stretch fabric allows you to move comfortably while preventing abrasion and articulated knees allow you to use your full range of motion for those tough heel hooks.
