Topic - Crimping

RyanCTJ - on 31 May 2013
I've recently rediscovered a love of climbing having not done it since my teenage days (now 32), so I'm very much a beginner again. I remember back then being shown a technique where you lock your thumb over your index finger to increase grip on a hold.

I was watching a video on YouTube where an instructor called this crimping and advised beginners against it as it can damage finger tendons. Is this right?
