Top 10 Names for Climbers

10. Eddie Sender
9. Cam Burns
8. Chris Wall
7. Rok Zalokar
6. Dick Stone
5. Felix Berg*
4. Crag Jones
3. Chris Craggs
2. Steve Roper

And the No. 1 climber name: Dave Dangle!

Except for Eddie Sender, which, Alpinist revealed, was a nom de plume for the late Guy Edwards, these are all the names of real climbers. Got more good climber names? Add them to Comments.

* Felix Berg? The name means "fortunate mountain."

Don't forget my bud, Roch Horton. Formerly worked for Chouinard, now a honcho at Black Diamond, and many-time Hard Rock competitor.

Of course, in the opposite direction, there is Gary Neptune.
