Anybody use gloves for climbing? Was thinking about getting some for a crane because of the cold weather, not sure if they would mess with my grip too much or not. I was looking into mechanix gloves in particular, they seem to be pretty cheap and durable, just not sure if they are the best for climbing.

I use gloves for climbing junk, but i'm in no way a climbing pro.
I like a layer between my hands and rust, jagged metal, glass shards, etc.
As long as you pay attention to what you're doing, take your time and have enough points of contact at all times, you should be okay.

Climbers don't wear gloves.

When actually climbing (rock or stuff like this), no one wears gloves because you lose too much grip. However, if your hands get too cold, they will freeze, become lethargic, and lose strength and grip. For climbing around abandonments and construction sites, I like wearing gloves for the same reasons as Relik. I have a pair of the standard mechanix tactical gloves, they work pretty well, and they breathe fairly well. The ultra-thin versions would give you more grip, but less warmth. Maybe try searching for a cold-weather tactical glove? I say tactical glove because those are made with high dexterity and movement in mind. I'm not sure if this would help or not, but you could try covering the palms of gloves with climbing chalk.

Another note about gloves, the palms lose grip over time, so keep an eye on that. My mechanix seem to have lost a lot since last spring, but that's probably because I use them as belay and rappel gloves...

You're gonna climb in the afternoon? Let us know how that works out!

Seriously though, I've climbed with super thin knit gloves. Just got some super thin gloves wih grippy things on the palm.

Consider "Belay" gloves sometimes used by rock climbers. They are seriously well made and also give pretty outstanding mobility.
