Check your Harness!

Posted by Tony Ryan on 08/01/2007
Signs available free to climbing walls

The latest addition to the ongoing BMC safety awareness campaign is the “check your harness!” sign for climbing walls.

Most harnesses use buckles which must be threaded back, and if not secured properly the webbing can slip through the buckle with disastrous consequences.

The new sign complements the “check your knot!” sign, produced earlier this winter to remind climbers to tie in properly. Both distinctive signs are available free to all walls, and are designed to be placed (screws for plywood walls or a bolt for other wall types) at the height of the first bolt. Climbing walls can order the signs now from the BMC shop.

The BMC Safety Campaign includes information points at climbing walls, Climbing Outside – a free pdf download, and a set of three posters illustrated by Ray Eckermann of smallmountains.

Visit the BMC Shop to order your FREE signs and posters.
