I just noticed the other day using a fresh set of grippy gloves and then accidentally grabbing a set of pine sap encrusted/dried rubber half gone gloves and was astounded how bad they were. Fresh gloves, even the first several hours of use are markedly grippier. That's the latex smurf gloves, Atlas. You can tune to your requirements, using bit older gloves to avoid the velcro grip syndrome were you can hardly slide a rope through your hand.

The SRT secret is transferring load from your arms to your legs as much as possible. Don't feel ashamed to Pantin a small DRT jaunt that you know you could muscle with moderate effort. Every rep into your arm/elbow/shoulder takes its toll. Spoken as an older climber (grey hair) doh. sucks to be old
