Screaming Barfies

Despite these 70 degree October days, we are in high-grip season.   535320_633143528714_957226645_nThose calloused pads get so numb we can’t tell if the rock is tearing them apart.  Our digits get so numb that “sharp holds” don’t exist anymore.  Our hands get so numb that the skin literally tears right off and we don’t notice until blood runs down our hand.  And cuticles, forget those…

Our hands will be so numb, that when they warm up again, we won’t know if we should scream or barf.  And ladies and gentlemen, that is the definition of “Screaming Barfies.”

For the full experience, why not make it a story of your own and come out to climb this fall or ice climb this winter. : )
