Can't Post

I had a similar problem when climbing in the hot humid summer especially when I started. Agree a lot of it is being overgripped and will improve with technique. I still do sweat in the heat though, and two old school solutions that help are (1) headbands and wristbands, 70's style (you will look like John Mcenroe on the rock and can even throw tantrums with style, throwing your quickdraws on the ground with disgust etc.) and/or (2) bringing two small towels, one to wrap around your head and another tied around an unused gear loop to wipe your hands on. I still do the head towel thing all the time.
