Anyone have any tips on hand taping for cracks. Ive been working a crack and have little skin left on the backs of my hands.

Buy some Metolious tape from your local climbing store-It has a very good diagram about how to tape for cracks on the cardboard label.

It helps to shave the hair off the wrist and back of the hands first.

The Metolius taping technique is also illustrated in their pretty catalogue. So if you're cheap, or enjoy ogling gear... request a catalogue.
