Injuries, Medical & Training / Re: A2 pulley injury
« Last post by HangingChad on June 09, 2017, 08:23:57 AM »
I've been through a few tendon/pulley injuries.  My most recent I wasn't able to climb anything 'difficult' for about 9 months.  After 4 months of rest I started climbing easy routes (mainly because I needed to work).  I never taped for this injury.  In the past I would tape while I was recovering but now I find if I need to tape, I am climbing too hard and just going to hurt myself again.  I have been using these for recovery: http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-Unit-Acupunture-Accupressure-Sujok-Body-Massage-Ring-Relief-Stress-USA-SELLER-/172040967676?hash=item280e70d5fc:g:wWoAAOSwSHZWfbo4

After those 9 months I was able to climb at full-strength again and without pain or taping.  I have some bowing and lumps in my fingers though.  No more bouldering for this guy.

I know, I wanted to retch from fear just watching it. Which makes this very interesting:

Basically, he really doesn't feel fear.

WOW that kind of explains some things...

Steve it's a good route. Just head right from Hugo's and you will come to a small flat section of trail. Look for a bolt on the nose of the corner 20 feet up. Go straight up for four pitches. Bring tri cams and a light rack.
