Rock climbing is a challenging and exciting sport, which can bring us many benefits, such as strengthening the body and exercising balance, all of which make more and more people participate in it. But there are some things to pay attention to when rock climbing to better avoid danger and get better exercise effect. Let's take a look at the precautions for rock climbing below.
- Choose the suitable clothes. Before rock climbing, you need to choose the right clothes first. Never wear shorts and tight pants, but wear loose long pants. Wearing shorts can easily rub against the skin when climbing, and tight pants can hinder leg lift and flexibility. Shoes should also wear professional climbing shoes. If you wear normal shoes, the soles of your feet will be uncomfortable and more likely to be injured during the climbing process.
- Before rock climbing, you should choose a good climbing route, because different heights and angles of rock paths and rock holes of different sizes will have different degrees of difficulty.
- When climbing, wear safety belts and protective ropes, and equip ropes to avoid danger. When wearing safety gear, neither too tight nor too loose, too tight will affect your climbing posture, and too loose will easily fall off. It's best to keep your index finger about the width of your legs. Knee pads, shoulder pads, elbow pads and helmets are also indispensable, especially when climbing outdoors.
- Before rock climbing, the fingernails of fingers, hands and feet should be cut short. Those with long hair must tie up their hair. Bracelets, watches, rings and other accessories should not be worn when climbing.
