I've been wondering about my grip position when climbing.  I have decent callouses on top third of my fingertips 5,4 and 3 of each hand, but practically nothing on my index fingers.

This strikes me as a bit odd and suggests that these fingers are applying force to the rock/plastic more often than the others.  I was thinking this might be because of perhaps turning the wrist outwards without realising it (external rotation). 

On the other hand it may be normal or just happens when you hang slopers.   It's not from campusing because I delibertely just use index, 3 and four for this.

Any ideas?
