In four pages I can't believe nobody has said this yet(also applies to sport). ALWAYS be aware of where the rope is in relation to your feet, that is unless you like to fall head first! This is one of the biggest things I see people not paying attention to, and it seems to get worse when their gripped, and possibly about to fall.

Good catch! (so to speak)

I can't believe I missed this one as I seem to witness it all the damn time. :oops:

1. Never get complacent on a climb regardless of how many times you've
been on the pitch(s).
2. BE patient with new leaders or partners.
3. Understand that the least experienced person on the rope really
determines when the climbing is finished.
4. Be just as careful when scrambling or rapping down from a climb.
5. Be fair, pay for gas OR beer.
6. Let the leader lead, no one appreciates hearing "no, you should place a
nut instead of that cam"
7. Be directional and backed up on anchors
8. Know how to escape your belay and help an injured partner.
9. Get to know your gear on the ground.
10. Have a great time.

Have a look at this-- lots of good stuff on this thread (print it or save it-- with enough experience all of the will make sense).

First Post, here goes.....

I started climbing when leading 5.8 was pushing the envelope, Nixon for President sounded like a good idea, and the first sport climber had not yet been thought-of; let alone spawned.....here's the advise I was given....

1. know and trust your equipment BUT, learn how to finish a climb without it, bail off a climb or repel without it, belay a leader without it; because someday you may be 5 pitches into an 8 pitch climb in the middle of no-where and oopps :shock: ..... you'll wish you did. :oops:

don't limit yourself to 1 climbing partner. I find that the more people you climb with the more tricks you get to learn either safty, placing gear etc.... just make sure they are safe climbers.
