Hi everyone, I've just come back from my first sport climbing holiday in Buoux France, it was amazing and so much better than Horse Shoe quarry which was the only place I have ever climbed sport outside before, my only problem was that I found the grips really sharp and after a couple of days my fingers really hurt, is all limestone in Europe like this? I found the underhand grips on Sticks wall particularly pointy!

In reply to bilbo 1: You may find you can't bring yourself to climb at Horseshoe ever again! Buoux isn't limestone by the way, it's molass (calcareous sandstone) and is more abrasive than most limestones, depending partly on how polished the holds are. Sea-washed limestone can be far more spikey though. Sticks wall is actually called Styx wall - name of the river between this world and the underworld...
