Hand and Skin Care for Bouldering

Article by Dane Whitley

Although a big deal for an irregular climber or someone just starting out, maintaining a level of conscientiousness of your hands is a good idea for anyone who is trying to improve in climbing ability. Over the course of a long enough timeframe, your hands will toughen up enough to withstand the rigors of climbing, the moisture sapping habits of climbing chalk, and the roughness of limestone, granite and other surfaces. Until then, it’s vital to learn what can be done about ripping, tearing and the degrading of skin that is bound to occur during climbing. Some may argue that this is a bit of an effeminate concern… it’s not. Torn skin is more than just painful, it’s also hazardous given the risk of infection.

Sometimes, it’s almost impossible to prevent tears and skin injury. Fortunately, as long as you continue to climb, their frequency decreases!


A pretty common occurrence, at least at the outset. They seem to happen most often from 1) rock faces with jagged holds and 2) at the close of an otherwise brutal session, as a result of a dyne combined with eroded layers of skin. This is taken care of by taking fingernail clippers to the dead skin that will eventually harden and fall off. Carefully clip the base, just before the skin still attached to nerves. Usually within a sixteenth of an inch is sufficient that the remaining skin is out of the way, but not too painful to remove. Also, wash your hands/fingers ASAP, as it were any other cut or abrasion. If you’re insistent upon on climbing through tear, then you’ll definitely want to tape over it! As soon as you finish your climb, consider picking up climber’s balm of some variety. Similar to lotion, and no doubt specifically marketed to climbers, Climb On! actually works very well.

Split Tip

This is the more progressive version of the flapper. As previously noted, you’re susceptible to flappers as your skin degrades, and especially so if you’re pulling down more demanding problems. On the other hand -pardon the joke- the longer your climbing session, your skin will weaken, and thus you’re likely to see the tips splitting open at some point. Not as intimidating as a flapper, it’s still a bit distracting. Not to mention it’s still an opportunity for harmful bacteria to exploit. Needless to say, it’s advisable to clean it when the opportunity arises. Try to control the bleeding if it’s opened and you’re climbing in a public place, especially if you insist on pushing through. Streaking rocks and rock faces with blood may look somewhat cool, but it generally tends to be unpleasant for others. You might take a few days off to let it heal, if feasible (as much as it pains me to say). Fortunately, these smaller rips don’t tend to be that deep and don’t take as long to heal as flappers.

Calloused fingers are helpful, and to some extent, necessary. Eventually, after enough climbing, you will develop some on your hands and fingers. Once they do, however, keep in mind that they are still connected to the rest of your skin. Ripping one of these makes for a pretty rough day . Sand/file/puma them down, just to be safe. Letting them thicken up too much will eventually make them a liability.

Regardless of whether or not your hands have experienced tearing or splitting, keep your skin hydrated between sessions (and clean is advisable, however optional). Magnesium carbonate (chalk) is an awesome way to increase friction while climbing, but it still removes moisture from your skin. And even though we all want to have strong grip and low friction during a climb, keeping hands and fingers in good condition between sessions is the best way to catalyze the process of skin regeneration.

How to Buy a Second Hand Hot Tub

Article by Marvin Maloney

If you’re considering buying a second hand hot tub then there is good news; the task itself is really quite easy. There are a whole lot of used hot tubs out there sitting in people’s garages, out on their back porches and there’s any number of reasons why people would want to sell them. So there are deals to be had but at the same time there a few things you need to consider before jumping in head first and getting soaked. Pardon the pun.

But before we get into the downside of buying a used hot tub let’s stay on a positive note and brush over some useful tips on how to get the best deal possible on one. Simply put obtaining the best deal on anything, is a numbers game. That is that the more choices you have available, the more opportunities you have to bargain people down.

So your first stop should your local newspaper classifieds, and you should have no trouble finding some there. Classifieds by nature are a directory source for people who already considered that they want to sell their spa. So your best bet for your “all time lowest” price opportunities is to find hot tubs that owners haven’t considered selling. The occasional unit for instance that is languishing away, gathering dust in the back of someone’s garage that they would be happy to have you haul away.

So why not place your own ad in your local classifieds? Advertise that you’re looking to buy, and while you’re at it, consider putting an ad in one of those local penny-pinching weekly advertisers that you can find floating around your local laundrette. Carrying on with the same topic, it never hurts to make up some little cards with your phone number on it along with your “pitch” for buying, and post them up on the wall board’s of local shops.

Used hot tubs are really not hard to find, and you can see here that if it’s done properly you can get them calling you up with offers to sell. But then what about pricing? After all they are used, so just like anything used you’re going to have to factor in things like wear & tear, and the probability of “maintenance and repair issues” that can drain your money in the future. Hopefully not the “near future” either.

The operative term that applies here as you enter in the negotiating process for a used hot tub should be the word “cheap”. Cheap as you can buy it for, and keep in mind that there are lot of used hot tubs out there that look perfectly fine on the surface that you shouldn’t accept even if they were free. They’re so loaded with repair problems that they just aren’t even worth spending a penny on. Load one up and take it away and you’re only saving the person who gave it to you a trip to the dump. That’s all.

The bottom line here is that, in case you haven’t checked recently, the prices on new hot tubs have fallen drastically in recent years, and they only continue to drop in the bad economy.

Not only that but even as prices are falling, a new genre of low maintenance, feature laden, longer-lasting warranted spa is making a “huge splash” in the marketplace. So before you get excited over any deal on a used “hot tub full of problems” it’s highly recommended that you check out what kind of deal you can get on a brand new one.

ISLAMABAD: An Additional Sessions judge Wednesday set free CIA contractor Raymond Davis, who killed two Pakistanis on a busy road in Lahore, after payment of blood money (Diyat) in accordance with Sharia law of Pakistan, sources said. Talking to Geo News, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said the court released Raymond Davis after the family members of the murdered men appeared in the court and pardoned the US National after an agreement was reached between the two sides. “He has been released from jail and now it is up to him to leave the country whenever he wants,” the Minister added. The killings by Raymond Davis in Lahore in January strained relations between Pakistan and US, who repeatedly insisted Davis was an embassy employee and enjoyed diplomatic immunity, particularly after it emerged he was working for the CIA. A spokesman for the US embassy in Islamabad said he could not immediately confirm the report. Lawyers for the families of the two men shot dead in a busy Lahore street on January 27 said they had been held for four hours at the jail court where Davis was being tried on Wednesday, but had not been allowed to witness proceedings. Blood money, or ‘Diyat’ is a provision under Islamic sharia law in which compensation can be paid to relatives of those killed to secure a pardon, and is commonly used to resolve such cases in Pakistan. The Davis case had sparked protests in Pakistan, with religious groups angrily denouncing the American who claimed he acted in
