    I took some sage advice from Better Bouldering last Saturday and it really paid off. It says that when you do a tendon, knacker a wrist, whatever, just stop climbing there, call it a day. The usual instinct is to try another climb and see how it goes first, and suddenly you’re out of action for a month.

    Well my knackered wrist injury re-occured, and I thought I’d take the advice, it worked. It felt like a(nother) month off-er, but not climbing and backing off for home meant my wrist was okay by the next day. Better to get in one good climb and call it quits than climb two or three and be out of action (again) for a month.
