So in my city, one of those bouldering / indoor rock climbing halls opened and I thought I'd give it a try (I had no experience whatsoever concerning climbing, but I thought it would be interesting and a good workout).
It was fun and I stayed there for a couple of hours, but there was one problem: I had some calluses on my hands from weightlifting (I always have those even though I use gloves) and when I climbed, the skin there tore open and basically came off. There was even blood and it took like three weeks to heal.
Is there a way to avoid this? I saw that they were also offering climbing gloves, but nobody used them.
