    I think Ms.Blair-Coyle went for a pre-climb swim and someone stole her clothes

      I think its a shame that what she wears, and more typically, how little of it she’s wearing, is the most common topic surrounding Sierra Blair-Coyle. She climbs pretty hard at competitions (I have no idea of her outdoor exploits) and yet I think she gets written off as merely eye-candy by a lot of climbers.

      That being said, a quick search with a few popular names leads me to believe she has the most facebook likes of any professional climber. (I could be wrong, but I couldn’t find anyone with more). Which definitely isn’t everything, but I think it puts out a kind of sad message to new young female climbers that the best way to get noticed is to wear as little clothing as possible while the cameras are rolling. She has more likes than the “fantastic five” or whatever you want to call them, Noguchi, Puccio, Stohr, Coxsey, and Wurm, as well as Chris Sharma, Alex Johnson, and Angie Payne all combined, with a few ten thousand to spare if my mental math was correct. The only 2 climbers I could find that came close were Alex Honnold and Sasha DiGiulian, but she beat both of them too (but not by much).

      I guess I just wish that one of the most popular faces of climbing wasn’t a girl that climbers mainly know as “that one chick who climbs half naked at every comp.” I’ll take Honnold and DiGiulian being very close as some consolation, but its still a little upsetting.
