I’m absolutely convinced that one can make absolutely anything into an “extreme sports craze” and someone will buy into it. This time, we take an ordinary outdoor activity that’s already somewhat dangerous to begin with, like rock climbing, remove the safety equipment — hell, remove all the clothing while we’re at it — and we have “Stone Nudes”, the brainchild of a California rock climber.
