To celebrate Climbing Magazine’s 50th anniversary, our next issue’s Re-Gram will focus on Old School/#oldsschoolcool photos. You know, shots of your crusty trad-dad partner who still climbs in painter’s pants and a rugby shirt, or that weird ancient chock you harvested off pitch 6 of the Nose, or that“B1+” boulder problem at your local area that’s as much of a draw now as it was after the FA in the 1960s—or anything from your archives from the past five decades. Send them our way at letters@climbing.com, and the best image, as selected by us, will appear in our next issue plus win a pair of Upshot Belay Glasses from Metolius Climbing.

Via Metolius: The Metolius Upshot (MSRP $59.95) is the new standard for belay glasses. Features include: sport-style temples, low profile nose pads that fit better while wearing glasses/sunglasses and increased peripheral vision. They are available in black, blue and purple and come with a hard case, lanyard and lens cloth. The Upshot is the perfect gym to crag companion.
