    How to prevent a rock climbing accident


    Knowing how to prevent a rock climbing accident can save you from serious injury, or even death. If you’re a novice rock climber, make sure you always climb with people who know what they are doing, or better yet, join a club and learn to climb safely. Here’s our top tips for climbing safely.

    Know how to prevent a rock climbing accident

    1. Make sure your ropes are long enough
    2. Always be aware of how much rope you have left when you’re climbing
    3. If you’re using someone else’s rope – know the length, or whether they have been cut down
    4. Tie knots in the end of your ropes to stop them slipping through belay devices
    5. Ensure your climbing partners know what they’re doing and aren’t lazy. If they are – if there’s the remotest chance they will lose focus – don’t climb with them
    6. Communicate – especially if you’re struggling or you think you might fall, communicate with your climbing partners
    7. Wear a helmet to prevent injury from falling ice or rocks which are easily dislodged by those climbing ahead of you
    8. Check whether another party has gone on ahead of yours
    9. Educate yourself about the risks of rock falls or avalanches
    10. Build strong belays
    11. Don’t move above the belay
    12. Check yours and your partner’s knot and harness and belay plate before stepping off the ground
    13. Encourage your partners to check yours too
    14. Never become complacent!
