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 quickdraw clipping techniques - an important and safety critical art.
Clipping a quickdraw correctly, making sure it’s orientation is right and you are clipping in the correct plane is not as simple as it seems but for safety reasons is something that’s important to learn. It’s also essential to make sure you learn to clip quickly, without wasting energy: saving that for the moves ahead.
Julie is using a selection of Wild Country and Red Chili gear whilst making these videos and you can check out some of our best gear here including: the Rock Lite helmet http://bit.ly/15zhrvv the Wild Wire quickdraw http://bit.ly/14IXnaZ and the Helium Quickdraw http://bit.ly/17duZuZ as well as the Ion screwgate http://bit.ly/13lHKl2.
