Same with me - too much computer use!!! Fine when my hands are warm but when cold - ouch!!! Still have just invested in some neoprene gloves.
I asked my instructor why I couldn't just use a caribiner to clip onto buoys etc - no comment so that is what I will do - damn site faster as well......
Managed to do quite a bit of high level climbing(ice) without being an expert at knots!!!
