Member Reviews for Climb On! Climb On! Mini Bar 0.5oz.

Climb On! Climb On! Mini Bar 0.5oz.

Essential for any extended climbing trip where you might end up with burns, cuts, scrapes, rashes, cracked cuticles and heels, tissue nose, road rash, diaper rash, abrasions, poison ivy, and assorted gobies and flappers. The Mini Bar is completely pure (chemical free), ointment which takes on skin issues that need deep moisturizing and nourishing. Simply pack it into the wound and it protects, keeps wounds moist and helps them heal while you pull down or take a much needed rest day.

Can't go a day without it!

Date:December 25, 2013
I love this moisturizing bar. I use it every single day. I had dry hands even before I started climbing, so the chalk is a killer on my skin, but this bar is incredibly helpful. I put it on after climbing, before bed, and really any time my hands feel dry. I have one in my bag, one in my jacket pocket, and one beside my bed, so that I never have to worry about going without it.
My only complaint is that it is really greasy — almost feels waxy on your hands. But that's OK because it's worth it for the results.
I'd say with continuous use, on average, one tin lasts me about a month.
Pros: Lightweight, Good Value, Reliable, Effective

This stuff works

Date:March 13, 2013
I have been dealing with cracked fingers tips in the dry winter months for many years. Nothing I had tried really helped heal and prevent the cracks. Nothing, until I tried "Climb On". Since using it I have been able to avoid painful cracks at the edges of my nail beds as well as on the finger tips. As soon as I noticed a crack coming on, I rubbed a bit of the wax on my fingertips. This little tin has lasted me all winter. It goes on easy and even smells nice. If you get cracked finger tips, you know how painful they are; don't wait, get some "Climb On"
Pros: Simple, Good Value, Reliable

Climb-On is my Best Friend

Date:April 26, 2012
Man I love this stuff. Super stoked that MEC is now carrying it. Used to pick it up multiple jars everytime I went to the states. I use it almost every day and it really does help condition your hands and make those beautiful calluses last instead of falling off in the shower. Stops hands cracking from the hours spent chalked up and, as the other reviewer states, it's great for packing into cuts to speed up healing.
I wouldn't agree that it's not greasy though. In fact it's very greasy. Trying to handly the guide book after application will leave stains on the pages, and trying to drive immediately after slappin it on will leave your steering wheel shinier than armorall. But who cares! This stuff is the bomb!
Pros: nothing else compares

I like this bar because it's not "greasy." But, more importantly, because I can lather it into cuts and scrapes and they do heel better. this little pot is expensive but it lasts a long time and it's small so it travels well.
Pros: Good Value, Effective, not greasy
