These gloves were recommended by several runners that ran the mountain race previously. The main reason for taking them on the run is for holding onto the rope while going down the gully.
I put the gloves on long before the gully because it was icy cold and I could not feel my fingers anymore. They were warm and shielded my hands completely from the wind. At the chain ladders I felt comfortable climbing up while grabbing the ladder with these gloves. They were fantastic for the rope and also in many places to hold onto rocks.
I recommend garden gloves for any mountain run where you might have to use your hands in some places. They are great for protecting your hands and are warm as well.
Talking about the gully, you can see where the stone on my trophy comes from…
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
