Forearms very, very tight

I began to climb one month ago, one time once a week. I didn't have any experience climbing before that, which means I'm still a beginner. Since I had early finger training from piano, I am able to climb 5.9-5.10 routes at my local gym. One thing which I find to be abnormal is that after my session (about two hours), I do not feel pain in my arms, but my arms stay very tight for the next week. As an example, I went climbing five days ago from today, but the tightness in my arms is still very present; I feel it when training for pull-ups and the like. Is that supposed to happen? I can't make it go away from normal stretching.

Edit: It feels like someone is gripping my arm quite hard, if that makes any sense. Like I said, no pain at all; it just seems that when I open my hand (trying to curl my fingers outward) it wants to make them curl inward..
