The biggest mistake most climbers make with injuries is coming back too soon. Obviously it’s hard to stay away from the sport you love, but if you don’t give an injury enough time to heal, it can easily turn into a chronic issue you will battle the rest of your life.
So you’re out on a climb, and something goes wrong. Maybe its a crunch in your shoulder, maybe its a loud pop in your hand (so loud in fact your partner thinks you broke some rock off), or maybe it’s more subtle, something you notice at the end of the day. What should you do?
