That has always been my thought on these as well, although I haven't used them.

Find me something that makes offset ringlocks less painful and I'll buy 'em. :)

Condoms are for pussies! And maybe assholes depending on what field you like playing on!

what better way to let everyone know that you don't know how to crack climb! I have found tape to be useful on some routes. Onsight is typically where I get the gobies if I repeat the route often it is done with minimal damage to the hands. Climbing hard crack everyday can be hard on the hands but then your hands become hard to!

Isn't scar tissue more prone to getting cut open again?

I think everybody is different(depending on what they do and how they treat thier hands when not climbing--lotion and softie stuff will make your hands soft not tough) I try to have callouses. I try to avoid climbs that will affect whatever I have going on with my hands at that time. Recently I had a hard finger pocket route that was sharp but my hands were calloused well. I was at the crux and my feet slipped and I fell. Felt like my fingers were ripped off but when looking at my hands no damage. The damage came as I f**ked it up two more times. A few weeks later after healing I came back and sent it smooth no prob. Same with hand jam routes I usually jam hard enough to get a gobie but come back and wonder what I was jamming so hard for.

Hey jlp my jammies broke on the second day... One of the finger straps. They made me climb better but I already was tired of being called names I hadn't heard since junior high....

Like we were saying, Jens and Steph and Jim didn't get the memo.

Nor did Sonnie.



Or Tommy



or well you get my point.

Which is that good climbers don't care what internet wankers think about tape.

To the OP:

This retailer, based out of Squamish, BC, has them:
rockempire.com/catalog?category=accessories]]rockempire.com/>>>

They ship to the US, but unfortunately it looks like they are out of size large. My local gym sells them, too. If you really want a pair, send me a PM and I can try to help you out.

I picked up a pair of Ocun gloves at MEC to try last weekend and they are legit. Pretty thin so you can still feel the rock features. I won't always wear them, just like I don't always tape, but they are nicer and quicker than tape imo.

Gotta get them from Canada, or somewhere outside the US as they aren't distributed in the states.

he is wearing the Ocun crack gloves for sure. I bought a pair this summer and I'll never go back to tape again. They're no thicker than tape - and you can put them on and off when needed while climbing long multi-pitch routes. You can get them in the states with reasonable cost through MEC (mountain equipment Co-op).

I get your point.... you tape and don't want to be perceived as guy with nuts on his chin, so you have shown us other hard climbing tapers/cheaters to justify your position.

Tape is aid. Live with your flaccidness.

Trust Russ! It is clear that no straight male has thought about ball sacks more than this guy.

If you suck a condom covered dick there's no homo.

There are many climbers who won't use chalk--ever hear of the "clean hand gang"?

That's what I've always assumed. I never use chalk - unless the temperature is above 110 degrees.
