Heres somthing we havent heard about much what are the long term effects of climbing. When I was with the State Gov out of 8 Climbers in my unit, 5 have all had knee surgeries, back issues, and 3 with shoulder surgeries, all after few years of climbing. I have had severe arthritis in my hands, and back issues, all related. We do somthing that requires the body to move in a way that is not natural for long periods of time. Should there be some type of warning for these new guys coming up, on what this job can do to your body?
