Rock climbing looks so easier when we see our professional rock climbers like Adam Ondra and Chris Sharma live on TV Shows. Our climbing hopes gets doubled and one buzz word comes in our mind ‘We Can Do It’. After all, what we have to do! just using feet and hands for climbing the rocks? It seems easy in that case when we had already experienced a lot of adventure activities or already done rock climbing for many times.
But, if you are a beginner or want to put the first gear on rock climbing don’t start it straight rather than knowing the right techniques for rock climbing. Do you want to enjoy outdoor rock climbing? Thus, don’t forget to follow the tips and guidelines that one should consider before starting rock climbing.
Safety is the prime concern that you must take care of own because it is impossible for someone to protect you from head hitting especially when you are on the top of mount rock. In this case, the helmet is the safety guard for you that will promise you to save your head from severe brain injury. Similarly, in the beginning, your feet or arms may get shivered or doesn’t maintain the right balance over hard rocks. So, always wear a helmet to keep your head safe and secure. It is also wonderful for the bad weather because the helmet protects you from heavy rain, heavy dust, and brisk air.
It is the good saying that starts learning from your mistakes but sometime we can’t find own flaws due to the self-confidence. In this case, we need a trainer or a partner to gauge our weakness and that helps us to understand the rock climbing technique. You can also join the beginner climbing courses to learn more about mountaineering. It will help you to find a new partner and connects you with professional adventure trainers.
You can’t keep an eye on every single rock, use chalk for highlighting the rock and remember the path in a simple way. It avoids hands sweating and helps you to maintain a firm grip over stiff rocks. As a beginner, you will forget the routes or not possible for you to remember the several routes. The best approach to remember the ever-confusing routes is to highlight the rocks with white or colored chalks. Plus, you will easy to know which rocks you find difficult while climbing and share your experience with others for practicing again.
Exercise is a natural way that keeps your body fit and active before rock climbing. It boosts your stamina, relaxes your body and raises the energy levels for making an activity jovial and energetic. When you join rock climbing courses, the first activity that the mentor asks to do is the running, pull-ups, core planking, etc. Though, they want to strengthen your muscles and boosts the heart rate for keeping your body healthy for rock climbing.
All you need a backpack, climbing shoes, chalk bags, gloves, safety rope, weather-friendly clothes, climbing helmet, belay device, etc. These things one must pick before starting the outdoor rock climbing.
As I said earlier, rock climbing can be a fun and soothing task if it is done with the right techniques or appropriate guidelines.
