We came across this photo on Instagram and got to talking about climber hands and what a common bond they are. No matter how gnarly, they proudly represent hours of hard work, determination, and often the accomplishment of something you weren’t even sure you could do.
Since this is something we all share as climbers, we thought we’d create a place to collect these hard-earned badges of honour. The next time you’re out climbing, put up a pic on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #climberhands (and ideally the location where it was taken), and we’ll add it to our new Pinterest board. It’ll be great to see this collection grow.
