Q GAIN ATTENTION. In two party climbing it is essential that the belayer is secured to an anchor. If his partner fell, it is possible that the belayer could be dragged up the cliff face or pulled off. On a multi-pitch climb, (a climb which involves a number of belay positions), the climbers must have a set method of securing themselves to the rock face.
2 OVERVIEW. The purpose of this period of instruction is to introduce the students to belaying for party climbing, by demonstrating how to belay and how to tie into all the anchors that are available. This lesson relates to placing protection and two party climbing.
