climbing is like every other sport...at first the muscles will hurt and be sore...after a while of climbing they will get stronger and used to being used and the pain wil no longer be there...and if i were in TX i would be more then willing to climbing with you but im not so i cant

Drinking water like Clymberchk said is key to keeping your muscles hydrated. Another neglected thing to do is properly cool down after climbing. Cool down by climbin some easier routes or bolder problems. This will help get some of the lactic acid out of your muscles. Also do not forget to stretch after you climb. One more thing i have found to help is to eat a protein laden meal within about 30 minutes of your workout. This will help in your muscles recovering much more quickly.

i ante'd up and bought a metolius pureforce training board so any day i can't get out to a crag or a gym i've got at least some feel of climbing on my hands. if you close your eyes real hard ...

oh yeah, the point of this post is that doing light slopers and mixing a left hand jug with a right hand sloper, etc. and just doing dead hangs if not a few pull ups will really increase not only contact strength but will help out those wrists and elbows slowly.

Don't forget to openhand everything in order to really focus on contact strength -- crimps won't help your open hand strength, and most ppl are stronger on crimps.

happy climbing : )
