I frayed a hole in the heel of the palm of this leather glove during my last climb on the backspan of the East Main Cable of the Golden Gate Bridge. The Quadriceps muscles in the legs get a workout on the way down and the calves and hamstrings get it on the way up. Leather gloves take a beating in both directions.
The glove pictured below survived two round trips on the cable.
