When you're hanging by your fingertips 200 feet off the ground, you shouldn't be concerned with your shorts splitting. La Sportiva Chico Shorts were designed to eliminate that possibility, so it won't be a factor. Chico shorts have a gusseted crotch and stretch material to provide an unlimited range of motion. No bind equals no split. Other cool features include an integrated toothbrush pocket, so you can clean up manky holds easily, and a comfort elastic waist that's always the right fit and never grabs too tightly.
