I am still struggling to get out due to this bloody ankle strain, & it is peeing me right off. I twisted it last monday on the walk out after having some fun soloing on Idwal Stream. It is the same ankle I damaged tendons in 14 months ago whilst climbing at my local crag. How long are you supposed to 'rest' these things for??? If its still swollen and tender and a bit black & blue is that too early to get back out onto the ice???
