I originally entitled this blog ‘proper climbing…’ but realised a) I was climbing indoors and b) I was bouldering. Forgive my pretentions of authenticity but I am still an outdoor/trad bot at heart and despite the recent twists and turns of my life it is the mountains I still hanker for.
Anyhoo – back to my finger. Had a fun couple of hours at TCA with KA both of us trying to avoid injury. I’d buddy strapped my finger not really for support but to remind me. Crimps and open hands ok but slopers were painful – proximal phalange sort of area. But not massively so so kept going. Jolly good – might get strong yet.
