When you do scientific inquries you should never put the "wanted" answer in your question! Alot of mistakes have been made to this simple error. Some big cases of "child abuse" are probably the worst examples of this.

The answer to the unbiased question was "All my fingers were stretched out, and not really crimping." :-)

I don't "want" any particular answer. I am only searching for truth.

If my "index, middle, and ring fingers" are "on a crimp", I assume those fingers are crimping. A crimp, (to me) is not a type of hold, but rather a positioning of the fingers.

I think many people don't understand what crimping "really" is.

A workable definition: Crimping is hanging on to a hold with the distal phalanx, with the DIP in extension, and the PIP in flexion around 90 deg., with or without the use of the thumb.

I don't appreciate you making a parallel with child abuse.

PS: Again, Alex, how do you know it is a pulley injury, as opposed to some other injury causing a sore finger?
