Prerequisites for safe climbing!
Good physical and mental condition are essential prerequisites for this fascinating sport. For example, climbers may be hanging on a vertical wall looking at the way forward when they suffer a mental block, despite having plenty of strength left. Basic climbing equipment consists of a climbing harness, climbing shoes, safety device, screw carabiners, climbing rope, and safety helmet.
