Hi All,

Thought i'd share something i've found..

"PALMER'S COCOA BUTTER FORMULA-with vitamin E" is what it's called, picked it up at Tesco's- Pretty cheap too 2-3, i've tried a lot of stuff for my hands as i get band fingers from slate climbing and bad dry hands from chalk use. Find this stuff excellent for after session and relieves the soreness nicely.

Thought i'd share incase anyone else suffers, much cheaper than the proper climbing balm.

Totally agree, and you can often get it as a '3 for the price of 2' offer that Boots and Superdrugs regularly do on hand creams which makes it even better value.

I've never used proper climbing balm, and I got it after doing a search on here as my pads were getting trashed from being able to climb reasonably regularly for the first time.

Just make sure it's the concentrated hand cream in a tube and not the all-purpose stuff in the tub-it's way too greasy.

I cannot believe I have written so much about hand cream.

Neither can I, but then I am of an age where we do not consider such sissy stuff.

Im one of those lucky people that does not really trash my hands while climbing, but that might be as im only climbing F6b+ and bouldering upto V5.
That being said, I dont use chalk on easy stuff, and use Neutrogena hand cream as and when needed.
