Lead belay technique 23-Oct-2018 At 3:58:39 AM Macciza
Toprope belay right handed...
Left hand pulls rope down with thumb down and palm away from climber, hand between climber and rope. Right hand simultaneously pulls slack through easily.
Left hand then jumps over belay device and grabs brake side of rope with hand in same orientation, thumb down, whilst right hand slides up rope, not fully letting go.
Right hand locks rope at proper position and left hand jumps back over belay device and slides up rope , hand is in same position ..
This way both hand stay in the same orientation the whole time and the brake hand never actually leaves the rope ...
