  • Wooden handle
  • 2 grades of file paper
  • Best used in conjunction with ClimbSkin Cream

Before washing your hands, you must carefully file all the broken skin. Only after, wash them. If you have a skin particularly dry, it is important to file them as soon as possible in order to wash them asap too. To file your hands while there is still magnesium facilitates the disposal of the waste accumulated on the skin. If you use the Climbskin file to file your hands while they still have some moisture or grease, use the black side (for metal). Afterwards you can completely remove any residue from the file by rubbing it on a cloth or rubbing it with a toothbrush (the lime will not suffer any wear).

- File and level every crack of your skin. If you have suffered great wear of the fingertips, then it is important to file the skin around the nails to favor a uniform regeneration. An excess of callus in these areas is not convenient, since it favors the wear of the fingertip.

-File the excess of callus beneath the fold lines in each finger joint to prevent the lifting or pinching of the calluses (especially important when you are starting to climb or train).

- If the callus overhangs the nail you must also file it to prevent it could get caught in some grips.

Once the skin is entirely leveled, you can wash your hands to remove dirt and magnesium. Then dry them well.

Now it's time to use Climbskin Hand Cream. You should apply it in layers, extending it thoroughly. Usually, 1 or 2 times will suffice. The layers should not leave any residue on the skin (if your hands are a little bit greasy, then you have used more cream than necessary). Cover the wounds, cracks or smilies with the cream for 20 minutes, then spread it and leave them uncovered, in contact with the air. Do this twice a day to speed up recovery.

You can use CLIMBSKIN® hand cream several times a day, before and after each session of climbing, without any problem.

Make the skin care of your hands a healthy routine and you will see the difference in no time.

  • Climbskin File Review by Anna,  On 21/11/2019 19:10:32

    Great file with two grades on a curved board so you can really dig in (or avoid filing fresh skin). Not 5 star because its quite pricey, but you do get refills.
