On Going Problem

Ground Prevention

Being lowered off the end of a rope is still an issue for climbers. I can understand that with the increasing number of people participating in rock climbing that this could increase the statistics, but it seems that it is still a growing number.

Close the System

  • Tie a knot in the end of the rope, everytime
  • Know your equipment
  • Tie your rope to a rope bag
  • Know your climb/environment/route/lowering plan
  • Tie the rope to your belayer (with a proper climbing knot)
