Safe System For Rock Climbing

Here's a simple communication and test system for safe climbing; whether you are bottom roping, top roping or leading.

Tied In & Climber On Belay - Then:
1. System Tight
2. Personal Check (Start Top With Helmet & Work Downward)
3. Buddy Check (Especially Checking Your Partner's Carabiners & Knots)
4. Call Of 'Climb When Ready'
5. Call Of 'Climbing'

6. While Climbing 'Slack' Or 'Take In' Are The Two Calls To Use
7. Use Your Partner's Name Before A Call In Windy/Noisy/Busy Conditions, To Get Their Attention
