 Post subject: Sore Fingers
PostPosted: Wed Sep 14, 2005 1:29 am 
My fingers get really sore from prolonged periods of climbing. They also become unsightly from the flappers, loose skin etc. Is there a way around this or should I buy an extra pair of shoes to put over my hands for that extra rough on angle granite?

Cut the flappers off with scissors, put the your favourite healing cream on them.
Torn skin: get some sandpaper and wrap it around a pencil (or other object) and sand down the loose skin and anything else that has the potential to rip or a flapper.

Sore fingers from prolonged climbing! yeah I have the same problem :wink:

I saw this old guy climbing in Johannesburg once and he had a sports wrap around his finger tips. A few months later after mocking him :) I tried it myself, it's nearly a whole different way to climb!

I also had a problem with sore fingers, especially joints. Drink lots of water throughout the day, works like a charm for me, lubricates the joints and no pain!

Learn to play guitar...your finger tips die and you basically feel no burn :wink:
Or get yourself on some easier stuff first and let your body ease into it, aggressive bouldering is the big killer! But it can be sorted with getting a proper schedule set up...if your body's not used to it bouldering every day will kill your hands!

It's really annoying though isn't, if your mind wants to climb but your body just say NO :!: :evil:
