comment “Must Have” in a starter Trad Rack
A friend once told me that you shouldn't buy any gear until you know what climb you're doing, then buy the gear for that climb. (As a starter, a set of nuts costs little more than a single cam. So I just bought a set of nuts.)

comment How to warm up your cold toes and fingers?
Bonus points to anyone that can answer this question for rock climbers. There's nothing worse than trying to climb on frozen fingers.

Finger boards are key. If you follow a plan, and are careful to not over-train or hurt yourself, fingers boards lead to Fast Gains. Be careful and be smart. But finger boards are key.

Work on your finger strength training first, then on your technique, then on your core strength, and then very last you can work on your general fitness.

comment Climbing Mount Teide from sea-level
@cluons I think two days is safe. Will it be fun? Probably not. I might do it in two, but I think I would suggest three days being a lot more pleasant.
