Nibz, understanding one half of one percent of English humour would certainly crush you to atoms.  Give it up, pal.

Which rung size (edge) is the norm for benchmark campussing?
Also... do you consider full crimp to be immoral?

if you plan on getting ridiculous full crimp contact strength then full crimp. does it matter what anyone else thinks if it's working. talking crazy training techniques here not steroid induced mutanicity. the potential for injury is much greater but then again... there are lots of ways to train. unfortunately i'm not good at any :(

Nah it hurts just thinking about it...

Of course it matters what other people think, what possible other motivation could there be?

It doesn't its fine. I can't see how the injury potential is any worse than half crimp?

Never hurt myself full-crimping, only open-handed.  Et je sui un weakling.

Anyone out there specifically trained their pinkie and ring, with a view to more savage full-crimping, in time?

Pinky in sling is pretty good.  It would make sense to do more of this for better full hand strength.  Try the ring and pinky in 2 finger pockets.  Nails!

Dense weighs a ton...

But seriously, heard some shizz from a man at the wall about Garth Oz training his pink/ring for ages.  Made him the beast he is today.  Bull?

Its good to see that the technqiue element can be conveyed in an article. I can't understand why it hasn't been done before, I reckon its the area where the majority of people could make the most gains for the least effort. After all we have Gresham teaching us how to flag every issue of Climber.

😂😂 14 years on and Gresh is still doing the same (albeit via Instagram)

Depends on how much you value your elbows in my experience.
