    Hand Repair Balm

    Climbing is as good for your soul as rock is hurting your hands. What once was baby softness is now rough and bloodied, and while the Metolius Hand Repair Balm will not return your skin back to baby softness, it will quicken the healing time for all your flappers and chalk-chapped skin so you can get back to climbing.

    • Hand balm specifically formulated for rock climbers
    • Antiseptic speeds healing and promotes new skin growth
    • Made in Oregon out of natural, organic ingredients

    Smells off after a few months

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This balm is great, but it started to smell weird/stale/crayon-like after a few months. I suspect the olive oil in the balm went rancid. Still does the job, but much less pleasantly than before.

    Climbing Essential

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    As a beginner climber, my hands are being absolutely thrashed by just about everything. Split fingers, blisters, calluses, and super-dry cracking hands. I have been using lotion, it makes my hands soft but doesn't heal the cuts and injuries on my hands. I picked up this repair balm and I swear this stuff is magic. I had popped blisters on both pinky fingers and I had a hard time climbing with bandages. Slapped this stuff on there and it's like my skin just grew an extra layer of hard skin at a super speedy rate. Also, the stuff doesn't feel greasy so you can still do things while your hands are being worked on by the little wizards inside of this stuff. I've been using it mostly after I climb and a few hours before.

    Must Have

      A must-have for when climbing takes a toll on your hands. Not super greasy, and keeps your dry hands moisturized.

      creamy life savers

        This stuff is great for after a climb, or after a work out. The actual product I got was a blue design not a read. still works great. I've gotten this stuff before. It makes my hands feel great and it has also helped some small wounds heal up a little bit faster than usual. so that was neat as well.

        Regrow Skin to Send

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This stuff always makes my tips feel better. Especially the next morning when they burn and it hurts to touch anything. Ease the pain and regrow skin to keep on sending.

        Sore tips be gone!!!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This stuff is like magic jelly that puts an extra layer of skin on your fingertips that's stronger than the original skin that you ground off on your choice of rock. Ok, that may be a little exaggeratory... but this balm has saved me countless times on multiple day climbing trips. It helps heal the skin quickly and helps keep them tough so you can keep barreling into your projects.

        Great balm and work well!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Didn't expect much but it works so well. Recommended~~

        Fix Those Fingers!

          Awesome stuff. Has become my go to for dry hands and knuckles. Especially nice to apply a couple coatings after a long day of climbing. It works wonders! Plus, the scent is exceptional, as expected based on the list of ingredients.

          Hydrated Hands

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          Good stuff. I haven't noticed my hands healing any faster, but the Hand Repair Balm definitely relieves the dry hand pain that shows itself after a day of chalking your digits. It doesn't leave your hands all icky like other balms do, and it smells pretty good.

          It helps you heal

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I've used this balm for a couple months now, and it works well. It's nothing to exciting honestly, but it does get the job done. I heal a little faster than if I don't use anything, but honestly neosporin with a band aid heals me faster. The nice thing with the balm is that it stays on a little easier than neosporin, especially in some awkward parts of my hand.

          Magic healing balm!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Excellent for places like Smith Rock and Joshua Tree where your hands are going to get eaten alive by the rock. Apply a little after the climb, and then a good dollop as you get into your sleeping bag and it restores you enough to get back out and get more climbing in. Not as greasy as the Joshua Tree stuff (although that seems a little more potent for the recovery factor) and absorbs quicker

          Magic healing balm!

          Protect the Tips

            I've been to the point on a wall were I needed matches to start the JetBoil due to raw finger tips. Don't let that happen to you.

            Metolius Hand Repair Balm works so GOOD and won't grease up your hands, making it super ideal on climbing trips when you'll be back at it in the morning. 1/2oz container is a great pocket size and seems to last forever

            Protect the Tips

            Helps Your Hands

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            I have a tin of this in my gym bag, crag bag as well as my desk at work! (see photo) It works great to cure dry skin as well as prevent painful cracking that will keep you off the wall. The beeswax and nut oils really penetrate your skin. The tin container is the perfect size with a 2 inch diameter and 3/4 inch depth. The screw top lid prevents oozing when the temps get hot.

            Helps Your Hands

            Dry Hands No More

              Living here in Utah, I already am prone to lizard skin hands in the winter. And to top it off, I love my chalk- it just wreaks a bit of havoc. I am a firm believer in lotion, but it doesn't quite do it for the wicked dry climbing hands. And soooo, the Metolius Hand Repair Balm comes to the rescue! I love the way it feels, it truly does help repair the dry hands, as well as help take care of the calluses without destroying the hard work. Not to mention, it smells awesome. It does take a few minutes to soak in, but not as long as I would have thought. Overall, killer product- good for any climber, I keep it on me at all times!

              This Stuff is the Balm!

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              I have a curse of always chalking my hands,then re-chalking them, and then re-chalking them again, generally 4 or 5 times before every climb. This habit has forced me to begin to use lotions and balms for my hands as they were always dry and cracked, but no longer. With the Metolius Hand Repair Balm I can climb and chalk up as much as I want to and never have to worry about my hands drying out. Generally I will use it every time or every other time after I go for a climb and it works wonders! It keeps my skin feeling nice and can be used nicely in conjunction with things like the Metolius Gripsaver Plus to keep your hands and tendons feeling smooth, healthy, and ready for another adventure. If you haven't used this balm before, definitely check it out, you won't regret it!

              Great hand balm

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              After weekend climbing trips I would come home and lather my hands with Burt's Bees hand salve. It was okay, but would make my hands super greasy and wasn't very pleasant. I knew for this summer trip I would need something new.

              I got 2 little tins of Metolius Hand Balm and took it with us. With chalk on our hands every day it didn't take long to get dried out. So at night I'd apply a fair amount and it worked good! Healthy hand protection but not over greasy, so you can continue on with your day. Here's some specs from Metolius' site.

              Great stuff!

              • Familiarity: I've used it several times

              I bought this stuff to use after a hard day of climbing, but I've found that it is just great for all-around use. Particularly after splitting wood or coming home from fire assignments. My hands get torn up from all sorts of things and this stuff is magical! Does melt at high temperatures.

              If you climb, you need this.

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              I climb at least once a week indoors and live in CO where it is dry, dry, dry. I also use a lot of chalk. I have tried several lotion brands but still had a lot of soreness and problems healing any tears or blisters. Until I started using this stuff! It does take a bit of work to warm it up in the tin but the stuff works!

              Have you tried Primo Chalk? It's made with natural oils, I have extremely dry skin / eczema, and it prevents getting dry patches of skin on my fingers / wrists.

              makes a huge difference

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              I am climbing indoor during the week and outdoor on most weekends, I have dry skin as it is and this stuff SAVES my hands! It has stopped my hands from stinging and definitely helps my skin heal faster. I apply it after every climbing session and even on rest days.

              Great stuff

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              Helps heal your hands quickly so you can get back out on the rocks.

              My hands would get dry, chapped, and blistered, but not any more thanks to Metolius Hand Repair Balm.
