Could someone recommend some exercises specific for strengthening my ankles and the parts that stabilize my ankle when jamming into a handsize (or larger) crack? When my ankles are jammed in larger cracks (handsize and bigger), especially if I am on it for several seconds (placing gear), my ankle joint feels very weak and sometimes pain. I think this is due to not climbing regularly, but in any case I would like to start strengthening my ankle area so it is stronger and can handle the unusual positions from crack climbing
Any suggestion is greatly appreciated!
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
