Crack Climbing Glove

Black Diamond's Crack Climbing Glove gives greater protection when you're hand-jamming splitters and cracks whether it's in the desert or the alpine. Strong, breathable, synthetic suede leather in a 3D pattern provides a next-to-skin fit and crack-specific dexterity. Black Diamond instilled a rubber adhesive seamlessly to the back of the hand for greater protection and grip that doesn't interfere with dexterity or discomfort. Unlike the competition, Black Diamond's Crack Climbing Glove comes in a white color to reduce heat from the desert sun.

Really great for lapping cracks

I've used it several times
Runs small

I was hesitant to buy a pair of crack gloves since tape has always been my go to, but these were well worth the money. they are thin enough where they arent like a tire on the back of your hand, and the coverage over the thumb really saves you. After measuring i shouldve been a size S but i initially bought a M on accident, but they fit me perfectly!

I originally got these to avoid abusing my hands at my local gyms cracks, but liked them enough that I even take them outside. While nothing can really replicate the feel of a good tape glove, these are thinner and feel more akin to a real glove than the other brands Ive seen around and used. Perfect for someone just getting into jamming to going out and running laps in LCC and the creek on your favorite routes. HOWEVER, they do run a little small. I imagine Im aggressively medium in just about everything, but the medium in these gloves left my hand feeling a little more constricted and pinched than I like. I have since moved up to a large and like the fit much better. Photo below for context on my hand size next to a 12.oz can
