The last 2 posts sum it up pretty good I'd say.

I think that rubber crack gloves could add that needed protection in the situation Bruce presents.

This is after a week of climbing in JTree. None of us used tape. Guy on the left had a ton of technique and experience. Guy on the right had a fair bit of experience but not the greatest hand crack technique (also he took a fall coming off Intersection Rock during a drunken kegger).

It's like anything else - if you let your equipment substitute for technique you'll never develop the technique.

Do you know which way is north right now or do you need to check the GPS?
Do you know your climbing partner's cell phone number or do you have to look it up in your own phone?
Can you climb a 150 foot hand crack without bleeding out or do you have to tape up like a mummy?

Word, Oplapanax.

Plus, bleeding is good for you. It insures that your blood is always fresh.

dude jah,
i wont hope gloves,
my shite is always slippin off
reality 'nd we could use
a better purchase
so's the alter-economy
can thrive,
and maybe then i can believe
is something bigger
than a can o' natural light,

be right back,
i'll be gone forever,
but forever is weath
and im broke and
by the way im the president
of the stongest sorrow
in the world
and when i wave my economical wand
the satans and jesus' and buddhas
and even hitler,
they all lay down at my feet and beg for change

see, im me.

The better your technique the less need for hand jammies. The better your feet the less pressure on your hands. Yadda yadda

Guy on the left had a ton of technique and experience. Guy on the right had a fair bit of experience but not the greatest hand crack technique

Reality: Guy on the left was climbing routes that were easy for him. Guy on the right was climbing routes that were hard for him.

Fact: If you are working on routes that are hard for you and you are not taped, you will bleed, scar and be forced to climb less for fewer days.

What did Reardon say? "Naked, chalkless onsighting is climbing. Everything else is a compromise."
