#BelayBetter with Petzl



Nothing feels quite as good as your first outdoor climb of the year. And this year it’ll feel extra special as we’ve all been locked down for so long. But, on your first days out, think about everything twice. Take your time and #BelayBetter

Start on easy routes, and make your first few visits all about safety, your systems and getting used to the environment again. Now’s not the time to push your grades, no matter how well you’ve been fingerboarding.

In partnership with The BMC, Petzl went to Stanage with team member Steve McClure and climbing instructor Katherine Schirrmacher for a quick run through of what you need to remember if you’re rusty on rock.

A few seconds spent on a Partner Check could save your life.

This year Petzl are sponsoring our five incredible Mountain Film sessions.
