In for a cold spell next week. Wrap up warm & get them hats & gloves out. On the brighter side springs nearly here & we've been lucky so far.

To be honest I can't wear gloves either. I'm a trad to and yes yer right you can't scrim properly. Tried fingerless but within 2 mins there soaked. To be honest it's my Ali ladder that makes my hands cold.


Thanks badbusdriver for the link

I'm both wfp and trad, both I cannot stand to do wearing gloves.

Slow me down rather than help.

I'm lovin the weather so far this winter, it says can be bad for a week but I'm not worrying.

^ Some people have warm hands, or just do better putting up with cold.

I don't wear gloves, even when it's freezing on windows...

me neither, can't work with gloves, well, 2 or 3 times when cleaning shops a 6am trad and it was severe, but could'nt do it all day, all fingers and thumbs! imo i found wearing gloves only delayed the inevitable of bitterly painfull fingers, and i've always found if you ride the pain barrier for 20 mins it passes and you're ok again. definately better to be wfp in that regard, but it still happens!
