Injuries, Medical & Training / Re: Trigger Finger?
« Last post by Admin Al on August 18, 2019, 10:04:16 AM »
I've been really having a problem with TF for the past 5 months. it's impacted almost everything I do, especially mountain biking and playing music. my ortho is going to try cortisone injections this next week and I am hopeful. surgery is NOT something I want to deal with. here are the options:

Steroid injection. An injection of a steroid medication near or into the tendon sheath may reduce inflammation and allow the tendon to glide freely again. This is the most common treatment, and it's usually effective for a year or more in most people treated. But sometimes it takes more than one injection. For people with diabetes, steroid injections tend to be less effective.

Percutaneous release. After numbing your palm, your doctor inserts a sturdy needle into the tissue around your affected tendon. Moving the needle and your finger helps break apart the constriction that's blocking the smooth motion of the tendon. This treatment may be done under ultrasound control, so the doctor can see where the tip of the needle is under the skin to be sure it opens the tendon sheath without damaging the tendon or nearby nerves. This procedure is usually done in the doctor's office or in an office procedure room.

Surgery. Working through a small incision near the base of your affected finger, a surgeon can cut open the constricted section of tendon sheath. This procedure is usually done in an operating room.

I've used guides on occasion when I've been in places I wanted to climb and didn't have a partner.

RE pictures... they have to be less that 125k in size.

Trip Reports / Garden of the Gods
« Last post by PG on August 15, 2019, 08:18:01 AM »
Now I know why they call it Garden of the Gods ! Ultra spectacular setting, a bit of spice and exposure on Montezuma's Tower. I was out there on a family vacation and managed to get away for a morning of climbing with a guide from Front Range Mountain Guides. Definatly the way to go if you have a very limited time to get lot of climbing in. I got 5 climbs in 4 hours and all were in the shade. The value of a good guide. A must do if you're out that way.
Tried to upload pics but no luck.

Rock Climbing: Trad / Double Rope stuck on The Eaglet
« Last post by steve4464 on August 12, 2019, 01:02:28 AM »
Did a late afternoon outing on the Eaglet today ( Sun ) and ropes got stuck when pulling after rappel. We tried for an hour-ish but it was now after 8 and sun setting.  :(
Reward if retrieve them. I can’t get back up there until at least end of week.
They’re almost 5 years old but in good shape. A Blue and a red Mammut, I think Genesis. The ends are coiled and on rock out of the dirt.
Thanks in advance!

Trying to sort out next winter's climbing agenda. If your still looking for partners, Ive been climbing in the NH area for several years. You might be a bit better than me as I max out leading on NE 4- but follow a lot on 4s. Just let me know if your interested.
