Topic - Tips on Cold hands

niallsash - on 28 Jan 2014
I going to Scotland in mid Feb for an annual week of winter climbing.I have been going for a few years now and have been there in various types of weather and conditions.

I'm looking for people’s tips/ advice on how to improve on the issue of cold hands during winter climbing. Apart from winter climbing I do suffer from having cold hands on a daily basis. I have invested in good quality gloves and what I tend to do now is try be pro active and shake out continuously, whether leading or seconding, before, during and after each pitch. This makes it manageable but I do wonder how anyone else I climb with doesn't seem to get it as bad.
I'd appreciate all advice bar down the lines of winter climbing is hard work, suck it up!

Cheers
