Wild Country and Climbing Magazine have produced a series of 'How To' videos designed to demonstrate basic climbing skills and techniques. In this video Julie Ellison, Climbing Magazine Gear Editor, demonstrates how to coil a rope.
There are many techniques for coiling a rope, depending on circumstance and in this video Julie shows off possibly the most useful, what she calls ‘the backpack coil’. This is a great way of coiling a rope that allows you to carry a rope in an unobtrusive manner if you’re walking down from the top of a crag or in any situation where you need free hands.
Julie is using a selection of Wild Country and Red Chili gear whilst making these videos and you can check out her gear here including: the 360 helmet http://bit.ly/YQJDmN the Vision women's harness http://bit.ly/12rzKQH as well as the Ion screwgate http://bit.ly/13lHKl2.
