Useful advice and a few tips to make climbing easier and safer:
Get familiar with the equipment: use only standardized mountain sports equipment (CE sign) & study instructions for use accurately
Partner check before starting: double-check your knots, harness buckle, belay system, karabiners, snaplinks and the end of the rope
Let your climbing partner know what's going on: communication prevents misunderstandings, let your belayer know when he has to take your weight on the rope
Act respectfully: respect other climbers and inform them of mistakes and dangers; always respect areas where climbing is not allowed
Protect your head
No rope on rope contact
Warm up before you start climbing: gymnastics and warm-up climbing protects your joints, muscles and tendons
Full attention while belaying: the life of your climbing partner is in your hands
It is strictly forbidden to fix new climbing hooks
No matter if you enjoy sports climbing or a via ferrata tour, you should always take a first aid kit and a cell phone with a full battery with you!
