The Climbskin® file is ergonomically designed to file away rough patches, peeling skin and callouses before they catch on the rock and become more serious to deal with.

Cut and file any lifted skin as soon as possible, no matter how small it may seem, to avoid further damage by snags in the same area. If a callus is lifted, the first thing to do is to stop the bleeding. Then cut the skin and file the generated skin step. Apply ClimbSkin Hand Cream to the affected area and leave it there for 20 minutes before spreading it. For these kind of wounds, an excessive hydration is counterproductive as this would soften the skin and slow regeneration, so keep the wound uncovered. But if you decide to keep on climbing (and most surely you will!) cover it with several turns of a thin strip of breathable tape, beginning from the tip of the finger downwards so it will take longer to move (change it as soon as it starts to move).

Slits, cracks or smilies are usually caused by a lack of elasticity in the callus, and repetition of movements. When they occur, they must be cleaned and filed out. Then apply Climbskin cream as indicated above.

File and level every crack of your skin. If you have suffered great wear of the fingertips, then it is important to file the skin around the nails to favour a uniform regeneration. An excess of callus in these areas is not good as it can lead to wear of the fingertip.

File the excess of callus beneath the fold lines in each finger joint to prevent the lifting or pinching of the calluses (especially important when you are starting to climb or train).

If the callus overhangs the nail you must also file it to prevent it getting caught in some holds.

Once the skin is entirely levelled, you can wash your hands to remove dirt and magnesium. - then dry them well.
