I'm trying to get a couple people into crack climbing and at my gym the only damn crack they have is one size which for a girl is big hands. Thinking to get some fatter gloves for her to use.

What do you suggest?

Would the Metolius leather big wall gloves work?

$38.50 plus $8 shipping (signature required they said). You shouldn't have tax being shipped out of state.

Think I'll pass at that price. (unless you give a resounding review - update us if you buy them)

If you want to buy, email Carolyn@planetgranite.com for purchase from PG.

I've been listening to folks complain about the whole aid thing forever. Unless you're climbing chalkless without shoes, stfu. If you're climbing chalkless without shoes, well then I simply don't share your hard core ethic.

Here's a reveiw for the gloves:

I used the gloves last year for 2/3 season and put some good mileage on them. They held up well, althought I'll have to put some new velcro (soft side) on them this year as that took a beating and as it became fuzzy stopped sticking so well. At the end of the season that was dealt with by a single wrap of tape around the back of the glove. They're very thin. While the backing of the glove is rubber, its nowhere near as sticky as climbing shoes. I don't know what Ocun says about this, but it looks like the rubber was chosen for wear rather than friction. I don't beleive the glove is any better or stickier than tape. In fact I think for tight hands tape could even be better.

Here is why I like the gloves over tape: prior to getting the gloves mid July I went through something like 4 or 5 roles of tape. This is both expensive and wasteful. I even reused some of the tape as long as it was still sticky and working. I've used almost no tape since purchase of the gloves. When climbing in Red Rock or Eldo or areas where there are a lot climbs that have pitches of both face and crack you can choose the pitches on which you'll use the gloves - on for crack's where needed and off for face. You can also remove the gloves at the end of every pitch, which allows someone like me to comfortably use gloves for belaying and descending.

I've seen hand jammies and some of the other "crack gloves" and these are by far superior. While not for everyone, they work and I believe worth the price.

I ripped the living shit out of MY hands last year when a fellow climber rigged a rap shitty and had to bail fast as the weather was pouring. Still have scars all over my hand. Not the end of the woirld of course - but as a RN - I 'wok with my hands' and tape up noe for all climbs! Screw that shite!

i used some leftover stealth paint i have to patch my shoes over a pair of carefully constructed tape gloves (just used a single layer of barely overlaping tape) and they are the bomb. i could probably make 10 pairs from a $20 carton of stealth paint.
