Angel's Ankles.

"Where Angels Fear To Tread" has a fearsome reputation for devouring ankles. From the scars I've seen, this reputation is justified.

When we jumped onto the route this May we came suitably armed. Our solution worked really well, so I thought I'd share.

Cut a 15"x2" strip from an old motorcycle inner tube. (Presumably any inner tube will work). Put the middle of the strip under the arch of your foot, and run the rubber up the sides of your ankles. Use a strip of tape to hold in place, and drop your foot into your climbing shoe.

Unlike taping ankles, this doesn't roll up after the second pitch, and gives a little bit of sticky grip.

Wishing everyone safe climbing this summer!
