/ Sweaty palms
My palms get fairly sweaty when climbing and although I use plenty of chalk, it soon turns into a sludge which makes the holds slippy.
Does anybody else get this? Is there an alternative method?
Thanks in advance
Try Googling hyperhidrosis. There are various treatments for this.
Oh yes. My hands are usually either sweating profusely or so cold I can't make my fingers move properly. I've found the best cure is to go skiing.
I sweat like a pig. A combination of patting them on my shorts/t-shirt, blowing on them or waving them in the breeze and chalk works for me unless it's really hot. In that case the judicious application of a beer garden and a cool pint is the best solution I've found.
