wow! it is nice to see that i'm not alone!
i wasn't even aware of the clinic actually. i dont hear about much around here. i didnt even know they held adaptive climbing clinics, good to know though.

i started designing a prosthetic for climbing a couple months ago as well, but after a while i realized how valuable my knub was while climbing.

i lost my hand march of last year... i've always been into fireworks and explosives and started making my own at 7 years old. i got bored with all the basic flash powders and cardboard tubes pretty quickly so i started making bigger and better things. by the beginning of high school i was making my own high explosives... what i really loved was designing things though so i designed a pull pin igniter system. long story short, i did a lot of testing on it before i put it on live ordinance, but i decided to bump up one of the chemicals by a tenth of a gram on the live test. that was all it took to make it go wrong. i pulled the pin (it's on a grenade basically) and it detonated half a second later in my hand. (this was in the middle of no where with some friends who were positioned far away, i was the only one in danger)
it was a stupid hobby i will admit, but it was fun while it lasted and i really dont regret it honestly
and there arent a lot of normal hobby options in the middle of the desert as you can see. lol

i will also definitely check out paradox sports asap!

Thanks everyone for the responses!!

oh, and attached is a picture of my knub after a little bit of climbing, just to give everyone a visual.
