Climbing With Blisters

by Kevin M,

If I climb really hard one day and start to get blisters and callouses, should I wait a day or two and let my hands recover or should I push it and keep climbing through the pain?


To be honest it all depends on you. You can take a rest day if you want or you can push through the pain. If you are going to push through the pain I recommend that you put some tape on your tips if they are really bad.

Typically, if I get a flapper or something like that I will take some time off til it heals. Unless I am on a road trip then it is suck it up and keep climbing.
