Thou Must Not Crimp! 13-Mar-2019 At 8:30:19 PM Stugang
Ok stu. Iíve had a 35 year journey with crimping. When I started climbing I was a crimper and I always seemed to have fked fingers for one reason or another. A younger climbing buddy who you prolly know (Matt) was the first person in radelaide to have a woody and he blew me away that he always open hand held stuff I crimped. I gave it a piss poor try and even though I read all the books and accepted all the science I couldnít stop crimping so always had fked fingers.

Back then I think I spent an equal amount of time taping my fingers as climbing. Matt never had any problems. In late 90s and 2000s I had nearly 10 to 15 years where I did stuff all climbing. In that Time all my finger probs went away and I swore I would never tape again. I restarted climbing but never taped my fingers and always made sure I open handed things I crimped before. Iíve kept it up till now and it is awesome- ultimately it isnít that hard to learn a new habit but benefits are amazing.

As good dr says once you get used to it it isnít that bad. Personally I am still chuffed that I can now climb regularly 3/4/5 times a week now and havenít had a hint of finger problems (apart from old man joints ).
