Sunday Video Roundup

6 07 2008

A climber was injured in Austin last week due to a belaying accident. The details are still being discussed, but it is known that the accident occurred while the belayer was utilizing a Trango Cinch. Belaying errors are among the most common form of climber accidents, but most can be prevented.

This week’s videos show the approved methods for belaying with a Trango Cinch and a Petzl Gri-Gri.

Fortunately, the climber is now out of the hospital and on the road to recovery.
