It is at this stage that the climber hears the the following words for the first time; antagonist exercise, rotator cuff, finger pulley, scapula, tennis elbow, golfers elbow, bicep tear, repetitive injury syndrome..etc. And so a new phase of learning occurs but not so golden and exciting as the initial phase. This can take a few weeks, months or often years to understand and overcome. This new phase will test the climbers resolve, imagination, time and ego. But perhaps the most interesting and annoying thing about this phase is it was avoidable!
