Climbing Hand Care and 10 Things I Hate About climbOn Bar and Creme by Guest Contributor Jeline Guiles

As a female climber, hand care is essential. Call me high maintenance, but when the palms of my hands sound like sandpaper when rubbed on a t-shirt, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!

Sometimes this takes a couple of times (with soap) to get all the chalk off.

The Bialetti breaks into three parts, the bottom pot, the middle filter and the top chamber so it’s very easy to break and stow away. To use, the bottom pot gets filled with water while the coffee grinds are inserted onto the middle filter and then set between the water and the screwed on top chamber. As the water heats up over the fire, the pressure pushes upwards through the beans, and only the pure essence of the coffee flows off the top. The Bialetti can make coffee in different ways, those who like theirs creamier take their pot off sooner while others can opt for the “Americano” style, the thick espresso with a splash of water over the top.
