The Hangout – WA’s Longest Established, Safest, Best Value Indoor Rock Climbing Centre with the Friendliest Staff. Lead climbing is a more advanced option/skillset in climbing, along with greater rewards, it comes with added risks. I was watching one of our climbers the other night, on the lead wall, as the leader took a fall, a couple of things combined to make it a lucky fall that could have ended up worse. The belayer asked what to do to improve the outcomes and that is why I thought I would go into soft catching a little here today. This is not a criticism of the climber or the belayer, it’s a chance to spread some information and help keep everyone safer.
