The Adaptation

The Adaptation


In order to provide an easier way to climb up the walls I constructed a pair of rock climbing gloves. Basic construction details for the gloves starts with attaching ropes to the ends of each fingers in the gloves. The ropes are then attached at the wrist with a clamp which can be tightened or loosened, causing the hand to contract for better grip. Hand strength is extremely important in rock climbing, so this adaptation creates additional hand strength for “Bob” and therefore increased confidence and success.
