First Climb 26-Oct-2007 At 11:04:13 AM zumojugo
I appreciate BPs advice and am aware that this would be a very sensible way to start climbing outdoors. However, it is not the way I chose to do it. It is easy to assume that someone who takes a risk simply doesn't understand or appreciate the danger. I do apreciate the danger and am aware of the increased risk of injury and/or death on this type of climb, however, that is only if your protection holds. At first I wasn't sure that it would so it made sense to me to do routes that I would be happy doing without protection. The important thing to me is that I was very confident about building the belay as I have done this before and so the only person I was putting at risk was myself. I'm sure someone will now point out what is wrong with what I have put in this post and I look forward to reading those comments.
