These is going to seem like a odd question, but it is one that I am curious about...

What is the worst pain you have had from climbing.. accident wise, working to hard, heck even relationships (not ness. gf/bf relationships) .. sometimes things suffer from dedications like rockclimbing... How far do or will you take the "pain" for gain?

Fell while bouldering and twisted my ankle on the mat. Took about 7 months for it to finally get better. Also, I just got over tendonitis in both elbows and currently have a torn pulley in my ring finger. Gotta love those climbing pains

Well, so far ive only had minor injuries. Scrapes, sprains, jolts, ect. I know if i had something more major than these i would still pursue climbing.

Other pains are lack of climbing partners. Even though i dont have any i still keep going with bouldering and self belay. Also my girlfriend didnt like me climbing so much but i worked that out too

i broke my ankle climbing a little over a year ago, and about a year before that i blew a tendon in my left hand. the hand is fine, but the ankle's still not 100%. i met my girlfriend on a trip to the new, so climbing has actually improved my love life.

For me the biggest pain that I have had would be all of the chunks of flesh that have been taken from my elbows and knees. But on the plus side it is worth the rush!

I've pulled muscles in my rotater cuff, thought i tore them but i didn't. Fell and missed my mat and twisted my ankle about 5 months ago and it's still jacked up.

I sufer tendonitis very often, most of the time at my arms and elbows, the last one was last nigth at gym.
I had a moment when I can't continue climbing 'coz the pain was so hard.

I fall off from the wall at 8 ft more or less.... my left arm was unable to keep me and the happens....

What could I do to eliminate this problem ???

Well there's the tendonitis, and the countless scars all over my arms and legs, but the biggest pain for me is during the winter when I have virtually no contact with climbing friends, and can't go climbing, it's so lonely, thats why I'm so stoked to have found this site, now I don't have feel like a loser because none of my friends at school climb.

I guess I forgot my "pains" LoL what suffers the most during the season is my schooling! I become... pre-occupied with climbing, and lose interest in studing LOL
