Topic - Grip Strength, ouch!

libertytoday - on 14 Aug 2013
hi
my girlfriend started an indoor climbing course and suggested i come along to see what it was all about.
i didn't intend to do much, but i jumped onto the bouldering wall for maybe 3/4mins.
i was shocked at how much it took out of my hands and wrists, they stiffed up and ached for hrs
i'm 37, slim build and pretty athletic (cycling/swimming) but obviously no forearm/grip strength :p
but yeah, i'm not sure whether to pursue too much further, i don't want to damage anything!
any advise to build strength, or to get eased in very slowly?
anyone else start late to the sport?
thanks
