My daughter has become very clingy with her mum; to the point that she screams when mum goes away (she's 16 months old)
This means that when we go climbing, my wife can't climb while our daughter watches - otherwise the screaming starts.
The other day, mum was helping a friend flake the rope - no harness on, no semblance that she was going to climb anything - and our daughter rushed over and dragged her away from the ropes.

I would say this is effecting her climbing... Any solutions?
(This is a new thing, she used to love watching mum up high)

Take up bouldering. Then again, that can ivolve plenty of screaming too, so maybe get earplugs.

Bouldering is probably a good plan for a while at least. We used to take my daughter out with us bouldering when she was 9 months old. There's even a photo around somewhere of her doing her first "tooth-hook" ;-)

I would just let her scream. Big deal. Your daughter will soon learn that Mum will return. If you are sharing the cliff with others, it might not be such a great idea.

It's called separation anxiety and it's a normal part of child development :)
Here's some info http://raisingchildren.net.au/articles/separation_anxiety.html
Get your daughter to help flake the rope :) she will learn more from that experience than you can imagine :)
