"Since I have recovered from my recent dishwashing accident (which was not funny) I have decided there are three projects that I can actually do out of everything I have been scoping"
A bad dishwashing accident! Blimey, I thought it would be overuse for sure. How do pro climbers manage to sustain their incredible performance! They seem impervious to the aches and pains us normal peeps suffer! Bahh
Anyway, hats off to Graham as ever. It seems even dishwater cant put out his fire!
Similar to Tommy Caldwell accidently amputating his finger with a circular saw whist doing some DIY then going onto climb the Nose and the Salathé free in a day......amongst other impressive climbs.
Thats right, I've watched a video of Caldwell on the Monkeyface doing some route on the arete its just incredible how hard he can crank on 4 digits.
He says his climbing has suffered on some types of climb like crack climbing though.
From interviews I've read with Graham it seems he just climbs all the time, obviously varying intensity but clearly even his active rest days involve sending sick hard stuff.
These guys have digits of steel. The common theme seems to be that they are all super light skeletons.
Clearly the is an equation here.
Pies + heavy cranking + regular sessions = finger injuries !
Think I'll cut down on the heavy cranking and regular sessions. Soon my pie eating will be at V11 grade for sure!
