Taping for the Climb

Here Beth Rodden walks us through a couple ways that she tapes up for the climb ahead.

not eurotape, but great tape

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the second best tape imo, but now complaints, it still gets the job done

It’s for your hands.

    You can never have too much climbing tape! This metolius tape is great; sticky, easy to tear, and it protects your hands! I think the Trango Eurotape is just a little bit stickier, so I generally prefer that, but this definitely does the job!

    Purpose Served.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Tough to beat the quality/ price ratio with this one.

    For splitters!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Going out to the desert and wonder what sort of sticky material might make your hands hurt less? Maybe you should buy yourself some Metolius tape!

    Its Tape

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It works great. stick it to your hands. shove yo hands in cracks. all is right in the world

    Tape!

      jamming hurts less with taped hands!
      I think it is important to have either technique or tape -
      Metolius' tape is less sticky than the trango tape and I think it best for tape gloves while the euro tape is probably better for supportive finger taping .

      Make Cracks More Pleasant

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I always tape up when I'm putting my hands in cracks. I have found that having tape on your hands help with sticking in the cracks and make it more comfortable too. Figure out how to best tape your hands and do it.

      Stickiest Tape Out There!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Sticky, strong, and cheap. What more do you need.

      GR8 TAPE

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This tape works for covering flappers, making into a tape glove, or any other climbing use! Nice grip and flexibility, and of course reflects Metolius' reputation as a great brand.

      Pretty Standard

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Decent tape, definitely not the "best" stuff out there but it does the job for basic application.

      Necessity

        This is a basic whenever I go climbing and I love this brand.

        Metolius Climbing Tape Roll

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Bought this tape because I cut my hands up pretty bad while climbing and needed some extra protection. The tape help up though my climb!

        Desert Tape

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Stood up to 2days of crack climbing in the desert, I recently hurt my wrist also, and this was slightly padded and comfortable for my aliment.

        Helps me repair

          Throw some of this on a flapper and you'll be back on the wall sending in no time

          Rollin'

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Great , all around tape. I make sure I've always got a few rolls lying around .

          Top Tape

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I haven't been able to find a tape that sticks as well, or is as durable as the Metolius tape for climbing gloves. It sticks great, and will last until you decide you want a fresh pair of gloves to protect your hands. It works great for taping up any nagging tendons to prevent further injury as well.

          The standard in climbing tape

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Its tape, it holds up to abuse and does its job. Its also easy to rip, which is always a plus! Perfect for use as gloves for jamming your hands into cracks or for taping scrapes or fingers for some additional support after minor injuries.

          Great Stuff

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          This is some really great tape, probably the best kind of tape. It does what tape does and works real well. Easy to tear a strip off, make some tape gloves, isn't expensive, not too sticky, but also not crap.

          It's a wonderful tape.

          Great crack climbing tape

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          Works well for its intended use of taping your hands for crack climbing
