In this one the caption says Mike's soloing, but it looks like there's a rope below him:

Teehee. It is a funny world where hard men wear sandals and not steel capped hobnailed
stompers. Awesome effort.

No really, the only good one is of beer.

Nope, definitely not. I think it's just some vegetation closer to the lens.

Possibly but I'd cut it rather than pull - much less painfull than pliers -but only do it if it's loose if it's still attached there is no need as it won't help and your nail serves to protect your toe even if it is black and bruised you could just do point 3 -although I'll give you some sympathy as I once bruised my finger nail and it hurt a lot.

>2) Tape up my toes

this might help but really sounds like your shoes are too tight - need a deeper toe box - but as a climber i don't really think this is an option. You could maybe put a bit of cotton wool around your toes -if you were so inclined.

>3) Get over it

Yeah maybe this is the best option but you can moan a bit about it.

Please don't pull your nail off though - not good. x

Re the hot paper clip - yeah this is a common one and if you get it just as you do the injury defo the least painful option (although a needle is better) but only works at the time - 20mins later and it's too late. x

I did a google image search for manky toe and found some guys bitching about some decent looking chick on a couch and how her toes were manky... Also someone bitched about the ugly couch followed by shouts of "Why are you looking at the couch" etc...

You can go look for yourself if you'd like, it's a manchester united forum (possibly NSFW):

Hey Nick,
This happened to me when we were climbing in Mexico doing lots of long multi pitch slabs. After about 4 days of this my big toe nails went dark purple/black. They weren't that painful by this time and it didn't really bother me. They stayed that colour until they grew out. Even now they each have a ridge through the middle. I'd say leave them and see what happens. It didn't bother me at all (except when I wanted to where sandals!), they didn't hurt, and didn't fall off.
