this is not necessarily good advice. if you're a social person with a decent friend group, climbing with friends is nice.

if you have social retardation and don't enjoy being around humans, you should boulder instead of roped climbing. climb by yourself, focus on the rock, go when it's not busy.

Luke Foster

it's a hard call honestly.

I'd have to say I really do prefer to climb on lead. It's much more fun and having a climbing partner pushing to push to be better while he/she pushes you to be better is healthy as fuck. Not to mention I want to start making climbing trips, but I'm not at the level to take entire cross country trips to seek out famous boulders. Famous sport and trad climbs on the other hand are worth the trip in my opinion.

I can't deny that primarily boulder has made me a much better climber because I've gotten pretty strong, and the emphasis on footwork is so prevalent when you start to break into v4/v5 you watch your feet more often. In my gym anyway, precise footwork on the walls doesn't really begin to make or break you into 5.10+ and 5.11a.

She did you a favor. The medium of climbing is actually in favor of gender equality due to the technique and flexibility required. Climber girls get deluded by this shit and thinks it's transfers over into other physical activity. They're typically brought back to reality when a man with a 500 deadlift choke fucks them and spits in their anus.

Doesn't help that most male climbers thee chicks are surrounded by are nerdy <170lb twinks either.

Ian Carter

You're far more likely to die from opioid addiction than getting murdered by a nigger.

Protip: if it hurts and the doctor can't identify it, they just prescribe you powerful painkillers. Joint pain, back pain, any kind of general pain that a doctor can't identify and you just wasted a ton of money on something a drug deal could've "prescribed" heroin for.

Hell, heroin would probably be safer too.

Nah it's starting to get better on it's own after 2 weeks. I can hang from pullup bar, even do pullups with very little pain. Just been taking it extra easy so it doesn't last longer than it needs. But that means avoiding the gym too because any hard gripping (for example, around a barbell) would be a problem even.
No pop so that's why I'm thinking it was only a small tear or something. It happened after I finished my project, tried a boulder route that was a new fairly pinchy v5 and once I failed I went to site down and noticed it was hurting. No sharp pain when falling or anything, it just came after.
Originally it caused pain to grip anything, hang from jugs even, but no swelling or pain from pressing the sides of the finger around pulley areas. None of that stuff hurts luckily so it's probably a short term injury I just hate being out for a few weeks even. The student clinic at my uni has physios if you get recommended but I'm already gonna go for a back injury (because I'm stupid and hurt myself squatting too) so I need to prioritize.

I just really hate injuries right now

Climbing gym in a major liberal US city. It's fucking death

It is filled to the brim with purple haired homokin autists and ex-swimmer mutant feminists with disgusting faces and massive shoulders. Weird pre-op trans people wearing revealing clothing is fucking gross. Or some white girl in neon spandex, French braids and a basic tattoo giggling on a V1

The only people I see who send harder than V9 regularly are loaded asians who don't have jobs and hang around the climbing gym 24/7.

Its the only good place for climbing and lifting but if I could swap for a less SJW gym I'd be out in an instant. This gym made me despise liberals and I'd never go anywhere near /pol/

Caleb Howard

Then I'd suggest taking it easy into the rehab : rest a few days then start easy movements with your fingers, pressing a ball, rice bucket kind of thing, doesn't matter.
If you are used to hangboarding you can also try lightly to use it as a rehab tool.

Good luck user, it sounds like something minor that will slowly go away over the next few weeks.

Going to font this weekend and pretty psyched, some friend wants to get a feel on some of the big four.

But I agree, some hard lead sport and even more trad require more work and is more satisfying in the end. (also more prone to burnout if you overshoot)

$70-100 shoes and some chalk for indoor bouldering.

Add a harness for $40-50 and an ATC. I forget how much they are, probably $25. I use a GriGri for lead now after avoiding them for years. They don't go bad though. If you don't lead an ATC and harness will last 10 years.

To set up top rope climbs out doors: a $90 rope, some webbing for trees, a few beaners and some slings for setting up bolts. $60 maybe.

To lead sport, same rope, plus a pack of quick draws for $100 and probably a helmet. Slings required too to clean. Probably should just learn to belay lead on the safer $80 GriGri but then you need an ATC or figure 8 still to rappel.

To actually go out and climb any place you want, $700 or so in cams, tricams, stoppers, and extra gear.

Plus all the travel. It's a money pit. I easily have spent $15,000 on travel and gear, guides in some places. And I learned with friends for free. Lessons to lead comfortably on trad are like $3,000 week long courses, but people love to teach too in the community.
