I would say it depends on how bad the burns are and how well you can deal with the pain and agony...not only from the burn but also from not climbing...you might want to try some aleo or vitamen e oil to help with the healing....alot of burn centers also use lubriderm on burns for moisterizing them (to aid in healing)...now im no Dr andI dont play on TV either hell i dont even have cable but it cant hurt to try the ideas i gave you....good luck and heal up soon

Steve: put some neosporin on it and get yer wussie ass back out there. Theres no excuses if theres no blood dude (unless you auger in from 30 feet or more)!



Seriously: how did you manage that? I was out at the cliffs toproping last weekend with some beginners and started to grab the rope to help manage my descent. Bad decision. Slight burn on my finger.

Neosporin with pain relief is the ticket.

You out looking at that 130 foot overhang?

Thats either
A) Meat Grinder.

B) J-tree

C) Big wall.

Except if it was a wall, blood would be dry so scratch that.

Oh:
D) a person who ran out of tape after doing the fingers.
