Topic - Trekking poles and wrist fractures

GeoffRadcliffe - on 19 Aug 2012
I recently slipped on a wet descent of a slippery limestone pavement. My wrists were inside the loops of trekking poles and as I fell the poles skidded and I landed on my back and on top of one of the poles. My wrist was trapped in the loop and bent round and broken.

Has anyone else suffered this type of injury? and is it worth keeping your wrists outside of the loops if there is a risk of falling?
