You Don't Have to do It All Over Again

Often times when I do not have a partner to belay me to climb, I would use the auto belayer. It is easy, you just clip on that 'safety rope' to your harness and the machine will protect you when you fall.

Recently, I had more opportunity to climb with my friends belaying me. Yes, it is sometimes inconvenient as you need to schedule time etc. However, there is an incredible advantage in climbing with a friend belaying.

With auto belaying a single mistake in your climb, means that you would have to start all over again at the bottom as the machine will lower you all the way down.
However, when a friend belays you, either you accidentally lost your hold or you are just tired, the belayer can hold you at that position until you are ready to climb again.

This allows me to continuing climbing from where I stopped and get familiarized with the route for another attempt! All this without wasting time and energy!

Leadership Activities: Don't believe me... Feel it!

Are you climbing your success journey alone or is someone there to hold you when you fall? Having a person like a mentor supporting you may just mean you getting there in 3 times the speed and 3 times less agony!

There is no prize for repeatedly doing the same mistake, all people wants to see is if you reach the top! Don't do it alone!
