Thou Must Not Crimp! 10-Mar-2019 At 4:12:10 PM Superstu
I was told repeatedly in my youth... stop crimping!! But I was a bad boy.

Now that I'm old, my fingers hurt. Lots. Scans show some arthritis. But on the rock, it's the crimps that aggravate things most.

But even on the easiest routes I can find... how does one NOT crimp? Do I need some Zen-mind-control thing? Tape my fingers so they can't bend?? Or just sell up and move back south to Victoria!?

A training regime perhaps? Has anybody done this and successfully taught themselves to open-hand everything?
