At Apex Mountain School, outdoor education is our passion. Whether skiing in the backcountry or climbing in the Vail Valley and beyond, the opportunity to share our knowledge and experience with clients is what we value most. To show our appreciation we want to offer a little of Apex to-go. Our guides are filming a series of How-to videos filled with helpful tech tips. In this week’s video installment, Apex’s guide, David Price, will discuss how to belay a climber from above. This is an important skill to know for multi-pitch climbing, as well as single pitch climbing.
Thanks, David, for sharing some of your favorite things about these different top belay systems! As always, the material provided is not meant as a formal means of education; do your own research to verify accuracy and proper interpretation prior to real life implementation.
