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 a very important and truly essential technique, how to get down from the top of a sports climb.
The simple but very effective technique that Julie shows is one of the safest ways of getting yourself tied in safely to lower from a sports route and is worth watch a few times to really get it dialled.
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.
