      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Mountain Toe/Foot?

Recommended Posts

Got back from climbing Denali in late June and my toes are still sore. What the heck is this all about? I'm thinking it is due to descending from ABC to the landing strip in one haul. Any experiences, length of time for injury?

I did the same thing about 5 years ago it lasted about 6 months and still have flare ups, particularly if my shoes/boots are not fit perfect. But it does go away, just take care of them toes.

I came off the mountain June 3rd. My left big toe stopped feeling numb a couple of days ago but my right still feels funny. I just hope my right feels better after the nail falls off.

It is an overuse injury- a minor neurological problem from repeatedly slamming your feet in boots(or repeatedly rubbing against the end of too small boots etc)

Usually gradually resolves over less than a year.
