Rock Climbing Basics

Rock climbing offers superb physical and mental benefits. Avid rock climbers usually feel in touch with nature and themselves. With the advent of inside rock gyms and rock walls, the sport is becoming more popular among the masses. However, the sport does impose risks and beginners are well advised to learn rock climbing basics.

One of the most important factors for safe climbing is having the right gear. It is essential that beginners learn the proper techniques and climbing knots. Most people benefit from taking a class to teach them the basics to start with. After taking a class, it is advisable for beginners to find an experienced mentor who can really show them the ropes.

Finally, the most important thing that all rock climbers should do is to inspect their gear regularly. A rock climbers gear is a lifeline, so it is essential that it is in good condition.
