Rock climbing is both an excellent full-body workout and an excellent way to get a healthy dose of sun on your body. But if you do not pay close attention to the proper precautions for safety when it comes to rock climbing, it can also be an easy way to end up injured. Follow these tips to make sure you are taking proper safety precautions when rock climbing, and you can get that great workout without the risk of injury!

One great way to make sure you remain safe while rock climbing is to do your climbing at an indoor rock climbing gym. Although you will not get sun on your body while climbing indoors, these plaes do provide you with plenty of safety measures that are designed to make sure their patrons do not get hurt.

If you prefer to climb outdoors, however, you can still remain safe; you simply have to know what you are doing. If you want to remain safe while climbing, you need to make sure you always go with a partner – someone who can both spot you and help you find hand holds and foot holds. With such a partner, you will have someone who will be able to ease your fall if you slip off the rock, and who can also let you know if you will be better off abandoning a route.

You should never climb without a crash pad, either, as a crash pad will give you a soft and safe landing space. A crash pad is no replacement for a spotter, however; remember, when you go climbing, you should always have a spotter as well as a crash pad!

You are fine to free climb on a wall up to ten or fifteen feet high, but you should top climb on anything that is higher than this. This will keep you from taking a big spill if you slip off the rock, as you will be strapped to a rope the whole time.

Finally, if you make sure you have the right climbing equipment, you can lessen your chances of getting hurt. With good climbing shoes, clothes, and chalk, you can conquer any route (and have a lot of fun doing it!) without exposing yourself to unnecessary risk!
