Got a question for the collective wisdom of the forums - I've recently got back into climbing (predominantly bouldering)over the last 4 months or so after about 5 years off the rock. I'm up to the point now where I tend to climb 2 to 3 times a week depending on how I'm feeling. I'm pretty happy with where I am, climbing v3s comfortably and v4s after a bit of projecting.
Recently I've got this ache in the tips of my fingers when i make a crimp shape with my hand, that hangs around for 2-3 days and goes away when I warm up and start climbing. Is this something I should care about, or just stop whinging and get on with it? Just want to avoid the dreaded tendon injury!
Tips of your fingers seems like a strange place for a pulley/tendon injury to manifest, are you sure the pain isn't from wearing down the skin on your finger tips (this happens to me a fair bit, particularly if climbing more than 3 times per week)?
