My daughter does crack climbing and wanted me to see if I could find some latex free tape. Her hands are sensitive to the latex.
Are there any latex free climbing tapes?

A quick search turned up these possibilities:
Many of the products say: Hypo-allergenic and 100% Latex Free
This is not specifically described as climbing tape but the first product, EX1 JAYBIRD® ONE TAPE, says: "Our strongest everyday strapping tape product. EX1 is manufactured using a higher thread count fabric which results in greater tensile strength." It is currently available from Amazon.com
"Cramer 750 is designed to provide high end performance at a budget conscious price. Latex free adhesive." I couldn't find a good single-roll price (shipped), but by the case from Amazon.com it is a fraction of the price of the EX1 tape.
Marketing perhaps, but the EX1 sounds like a safer bet since Jaybird make several non-stretch tapes and the EX1 is "[their] strongest" and specifically says "Hypo-allergenic" rather than simply latex-free.
