Falling Physics

From the Hard is Easy YouTube channel. Impact forces during Lead Climbing Falls – a bonus episode of their Belaying Masterclass. Understand what role rope length, stretch and friction plays in climbing falls and you will be an awesome belayer.

Presented from a climber’s perspective, but the principles apply to canyoneering and other rope disciplines. Keep in mind that climbers are using dynamic climbing ropes, not the low-stretch ropes commonly used in canyoneering.

Please share your comments below the video.
