    customer wont pay

    Take the money , move on to the next customer , there is always tightwads in any business , you probably find if you keep working to a decent standard you'll get a tip off a different customer making up the short fall , you need some bad customers to appreciate the good ones worth working for !

    Ochsenkopf from clarks forestry not as brittle as the oregon ones I used to use , bit of a nightmare to pronounce when your ordering them though !

    Durable climbing gloves

    I use skytec basalt r gloves, very cheap , tenner for ten pairs , last better than other makes I've used , they are fairly thin but the rubber lining on the palms doesnt catch in your zigag or prussic , you can get the thermal version as well , but they are too thick for me for climbing
