    Having used Climb On for years and found it very effective, I’ve found that ClimbSkin Cream complements rather than replaces it. Climb On works well as a deep moisturiser that takes some time to properly soak in, so it is best as an overnight application. The Climb Skin however, has a percentage of alcohol which helps to accelerate it’s drying time. It can be used during the day and a couple of hours pre climb where it will hydrate the skin and dry enough to not be a greasy hindrance when pulling hard on the rock.

     

    I’ve used it on several climbing trips as an after the morning shower application, making my skin hydrated and supple (a bit more elastic and leathery) which means it is less prone to splitting or tearing on sharp edges.

     

    I suffer from split nail beds fairly often where my nails separate from the fingertips and it is really quite painful to crimp down on anything. Climb Skin doesn’t work very well for this due to the alcohol content drying out the area under the nail a bit but is great on the fingertips.

     

    Being a cream rather than a wax bar it does mean that it is easy to burn through a tub quite fast, so try to control your use a little and use something else as an overnight deep moisturiser such as Climb On, Kletter Retter or Rhino Repair (other excellent moisturisers are also available!).

    ClimbOn Creme is a greasy miracle cream for fixing bigger wounds and super sore skin.

     

    I once had a reasonable case of rope burn on one armpit, not a pleasant place for scabby broken skin! By applying the creamier version of ClimbOn daily the wound maintained a soft flexible outer, speeding up a more comfortable recovery. On another occasion I managed to chop a shallow part of the skin on my thumb off whilst cutting kindling; ClimbOn and tape had it grow back in a fortnight. It was only skin but all the way into the real fleshy stuff under the white layer.

     

    A top tip, keep surface wounds like this moist, clean and covered. The old saying to ‘let it breathe’ doesn’t work, it just allows a scab to form, slowing circulation and encouraging scar tissue. The cream can separate if you don’t use it for some time, so if this does happen I just squish the bottle around a bunch to mix it up.
