Topic - Anyone used wrist gaiters for ice climbing?

GridNorth - on 27 Dec 2012
And perhaps more importantly did they work? I'm fed up with getting hot-aches and now I'm getting on a bit I notice the cold even more. Last year I was nearly sick with hot-ache pain in my fingers. I have read that because the veins are near to the surface on the wrist that this contributes significantly towards cold fingers. My Rab Powerstretch top has thumb loops but the fabric tends to rub raw between my thumb and first finger so I have tended not to use them. I would have thought that wrist gaiters would be less prone to doing this as you are not pulling against the fabric every time you reach up.
