Superglue and Climbing

The best way I've found to heal flappers quickly, is to use Smith&Nephew's "OpSite" plastic skin spray. Clean all the dead/flapper skin away with a sharp implement, spray on, wait a couple of days.

No good if you wanna crank straight away, but heals flappers in days, nothing but gold.

When you're ready to go back out again, a thin layer of super glue and it's happy days.

I had an idea but it might be worthless - PVA instead of superglue. if you use enough of it to coat a flapper it'd seal and wouldn't hurt, but just use water after and you're all good???

not sure if it'd work but i'm more for that then superglueing my hands together...

Maybe shoe goo? Might give it a go some time...... works for shoes......might work for hands....
clean with acetone......couldn't be worse than using nail polish cleaner. Not that I'd know anything about that.

I had a freind who climbed in the states and said he actually sent a route with a nasty slippery slopy crimp by putting superglue on his tips then grabbing the hold and yarding down to his waist sent the route but maybe its Aid

you lose a bit of sensitivity with superglue on your tips.. makes it a lil slippery

Bah shoe goo carcinogenic? So is sunlight, burnt toast, smoking, maybe mobile phones, petrol fumes.........so if I cut back on those and just use shoe goo......will I come out even?

I wonder if I could use superglue to fashion a nice set of hooks on my fingertips - to help me deal with those crimpers. Hmmm..... the mind boggles.

Hi Richard, how are you?!

maybe the way to go would be superglue mixed with a lil sand...
