An overview of the mountain goat's subalpine environment
A glimpse into how the mountain goat's general anatomy contributes to their excellence in climbing.
A comparison of the shifts in center of gravity between slab, vertical, and overhang climbing.
A comparison of the neck and shoulder anatomy between mountain goats and humans.
A look into the homologous nature of a goat's forelimb skeletal structure and the human hand.
The biomechanics of the mountain goat hoof.
Finger injuries commonly plague climbers. H-Taping is a recommended form of finger taping to add extra support to prevent injury.
PIP joint capsulitis affects the proximal interphalangeal phalanx. The capsule can become inflamed and filled with fluid.
Another scenario of PIP joint capsulitis occurs when the collateral ligament is damaged.
Pulley ruptures are a climber's worst nightmare. The pulleys that keep the tendons close to the bone partially or fully tear. This can cause the tendon to come away from the bone, causing "bowstringing."
Tenosynovitis occurs when the tendon sheath in the hands becomes inflamed.
