The World’s Worst Belayer

Any climber may encounter such behavior. Though it may not always be as exaggerated.

  • Am I not maybe just as bad sometimes?
  • If it were me at the other end of the rope, would I be laughing as loud?


A nice little promo video by Petzl on bad belaying, highlighting some of the little habits we like to get into. However, even though it is an exaggerated video it is a serious matter.
