Sample text

This affects the climber both in the arrest of the fall and any recoil back into the rock surface. Similar consideration must be given to falls by the climber themselves by awareness of good falling techniques [9]. It is crucial for a climber to understand, plan, and train his body position and reaction to a fall, which is a common part of sport climbing. As in many other sports, awareness and preparation are essential. General preventive measures such as warm up and cool down and stretching and training of the antagonists are important preventive measurements.

In parallel with the technological advancements in crampons and ice axes, Erich Friedli from Switzerland developed the first real ice screw [10]. This ice screw has played a pivotal role in increasing the safety of the sport. If placed correctly, in good ice and proper angle, it may guarantee a comparable pullout strength to bolts. All climbing disciplines use climbing ropes for protection. These ropes are dynamic ropes, in contrast to static ropes as used in sailing and caving. Dynamic ropes have a stretch of roughly 5 m per 50 m when stressed, which reduces the force onto the falling climber’s body.
