I own both OR's Ascendant Pants and their Runout Pants. They are similar in most respects. Either is a great choice for rock climbers. The main visible difference is that the Ascendant Pants have knee panels made from durable cotton canvas. The panels stand out somewhat, so if you're looking for pants to wear around town and are concerned about the appearance, go for the Runouts. The Runouts are made of 100% cotton ripstop material. Apart from the knee panels, the Ascendants are made of a cotton/spandex blend. Both are durable and breathable. Both have a built-in cinch belt as well belt loops; a thigh pocket for a cell phone or whatever; front and back pockets; and a low-profile waist to fit under a harness.
