Photographer's Note

This was taken at the Seoul International Bouldering Competition. There were International and Korean climbers competing. Some climbers tape their fingers before climbing to help support the tendons which suffer lots of abuse when hanging from your finger tips.

Each climber has his or her pre-climb ritual. Most include looking at the holds and visualizing the moves. But every climber chalks their hands. This keeps your hands dry and sticking to rock or plastic. You can never hand enough chalk :)

This was taken with my friend davidsmeatons lens, a 100-300mm Sigma I think. Thanks David.
