Topic - Climbing with Raynaud's

captain paranoia - on 07 Dec 2010
Interesting article in this quarter's Summit about coping with Raynaud's.

The author's solution was a pair of wristlets made from old socks, to keep the wrists warm. This tallies with my experience that keeping the wrists and forearms warm helps to reduce the frequency of attacks.

I had a look at the Raynaud's society website, and I see they sell a nice pair of fingerless fleece mittens for a fiver http://www.raynauds.org.uk/raynauds/recommended-products . I have a pair of fingerless fleece gloves with a long cuff, found in the discount bin in Millets that do the same job, and warm the fingers, too.
