hand injury - Climbing

any of u fools climb?

i started bouldering in Feb '12 at indoor gym because the top roping sucks (only 25' building) and it really is awesome, i ended up climbing about 3 times a week. i saw huge improvement in shoulder lats and hand strength....went from being able to only do 10 pullups (militay style dead hang) to doing 3 sets of 10 like its nothing and being able to climb some of the more difficult routes.

2 weeks ago before a trip to Yosemite for my first outdoors climb i suffered a spiral fracture of my 3rd metacarpal and also think i tore ligaments on MCP...cast comes off monday. anyone have experience with broken hand? i guess ill find out monday if surgery is necessary, not optimistic since knuckle feels extremely unstable, even in cast

Re: hand injury - Climbing

mine come from boxing so it its a bit different injury, but youre going to find you lost a good deal of grip strength in that time, I doubt you should be climbing any time soon.

Re: hand injury - Climbing

day after break (x-ray on left)...3 weeks later (xray on right), it is week 6 and the xray kinda looks the same as the 3 week only with like a layer of bone over it, 3 more weeks and i'm cleared to get back on wall...doc was hesitant to say i could climb now, seems like i could, but i might as well take it easy for another 2 weeks or so

Re: hand injury - Climbing

About a month ago I bouldered Rocktown and climbed Sandrock (NE Alabama/NW Georgia), nothing crazy just 5.10's and v2's

...can't wait for Yosemite, any of you climb? It really is awesome.

Get back to me when you do that shit with a 30 pound weapon, and a 120 pound pack, in the fucking rain.
