Topic - Beastmaker for the older climber ?

Dave Reeve - on 27 Dec 2012
Having been climbing for 25+ years I'm currently around 7A sport/indoors and E2 on trad limestone. My main inhibitor to climbing harder seems to be lack of finger strength which is particularly noticable on indoor boulder walls where I just can't hang on some of the tiny holds and/or slopers..

Most of the strong (and much younger) lads have beastmakers so I'm considering getting one. I don't expect to be able to train as hard as someone of 18 and I don't want to finish off my somewhat abused fingers but do you think some worthwhile gains could be made if a sensible training regime was followed ?
