Gripped - - BACK TO BASICS -

Thin gloves Thick gloves are great for be­lay­ing, but ter­ri­ble for climb­ing. If your body is warm and your blood is mov­ing thin gloves or bare hands of­fer the best dex­ter­ity and the least amount of pump while climb­ing. While they of­fer no wa­ter re­sis­tance, golf gloves of­fer great dex­ter­ity. Keep your climb­ing gloves warm while be­lay­ing and put them on and wear your be­lay gloves over them while pre­par­ing to climb. If your hands are slightly cool be­fore you start climb­ing they will prob­a­bly only get colder. I find that if they are warm they gen­er­ally stay warm as long as I keep mov­ing.
