In this video series on UKClimbing, we have teamed up with Plas y Brenin, the National Mountain Sports Centre, to cover a wide range of basic climbing techniques.
We will be explaining everything from putting on harnesses and tying figure of eights, to building belays and leading, by watching Mountaineering Instructors Dave Evans (Pyb staff and MIC), Dave Rudkin (PyB staff and MIC) and Jack Geldard (UKC staff and MIA).
We hope you find these `quick-fire` instructional videos useful for learning basics and polishing up on essential skills, but they don`t replace proper instruction and years of experience!
In this video, Dave Rudkin shows us how to lead belay.
