When to wear gloves in climbing | different situations


After climbing for a while your hands begin to look and feel a bit rough. That is when the classic non climber asks her son/daughter "don't you want to wear gloves to protect those pretty hands". We can only shake our heads to that. In Sport climbing, bouldering, trad climbing athletes do not wear gloves, it would take away the entire sensation and disconnect the climber from the rock. The only time gloves are useful is during a via ferata, as you move along difficult terrain and can only hold on to that steel cable.
