Screw it on properly to hold the small scratchy bar and that's it: you get a crack in your finger. Climbing on is not an option. If you don't want to let it slow you down, you have to tap your finger. Sports doctor Volker Schöffl shows how to do this in this tutorial.

Most of them have a crack in their fingers when climbing, often called “cut”. If this happens at the beginning of the climbing day or stay, you don't want to do without the rest of the time. So that you can climb again, you have to do the following.

  1. Stop bleeding
  2. Disinfect
  3. Apply tape according to video instructions

We recommend that to you as tape Leukotape Classic.
