As Anyone Climbing With Long Fingernails?

Hello everyone,

I do a bit of indoor and outdoor rock climbing and with lockdown, I haven’t done any climbing. I naturally have long fingernails that are strong and last a long time months before their break. I take care for my nails, coming from a beauty background your appearance is important from head to toe. I’m a member of the climbing group and I posted the following text:

‘This a stupid question to ask I know but I wanted to know as a lady going climbing with long fingernails? I naturally have long nails. I used to cut them when I was beauty therapist as used to do a lot of massage treatments but since the lockdown, I closed my beauty business and I have started another business which means I don’t have to cut my nails any more but I’m worried about going climbing.

Any advice to keep my nails and still go climbing?’

Let me introduce myself. My name is Ines Newell. I am a qualified life coach currently completing my postgraduate certificate in business and executive coaching with Leeds Beckett University. Before the covid-19 pandemic, I was a part-time self-employed beauty therapist (since 2007.) I specialised in waxing treatment. I enjoyed meeting people and listening to their lives and struggles. It is this that inspired me to get into coaching and mentoring. When I shared my struggles and pains with my customers and how I had overcome they told me that I was an inspiration to them and they had made changes in their lives that previously they had not thought possible. The decision to permanently close my beauty business was hard, but I wanted to do something new. Something where I could learn from other people’s experiences, something where others could learn from mine, and together we could expand our understanding, knowledge and wisdom of the world and each other. I look forward to learning and growing together. Ines Newell


    1. I did consider just doing handcrack but I’m not very good at it. I’m currently going camping and hiking more so I’m giving climbing a little rest. When I go back to climbing I will cut them. For now I’m enjoying showing off my long fingernails 😊
