'aid ratings' is missing, and is referred to in at least two other articles (aid climbing and class 6)

proposed changes...

belay(v)... ditch the 'preventing rope from from being paid out if the climber falls' for 'protecting the climber in the event of a fall'.

belayer... a person who is belaying a climber.

drop knee... technique requiring twisting your body and a downward turning of the inside knee to increase reach efficiency. (short, i know, but to the point)

Figure 4 - n. An uncommon technique to make long reaches that requires lifting a leg over the opposite arm, putting the body in a position that resembles a "4". Mostly used in ice and mixed climbing.

add...

Figure 9 - n. An uncommon technique to make long reaches that requires lifting a leg over the arm on the same side of the climbers body, putting the body in a position that resembles a "9". Mostly used in ice and mixed climbing.

change...

Flag... SCC refers to flagging as using feet without holds to improove balance and create sideways momentum. maybe this should be included in some way.

put the two definitions of 'jug' into one, they are redundant.

pendulum... add... also a dangerous situation that may occur during a fall, if the top piece of protections is off to one side.

second... add... (n) a person (one or more) who is seconding a climb.

solo... it does not necessarily have to be free. you can also solo climb with protection, or solo aid etc. it only means that you are climbing alone, without a partner.


thats it for now i guess. i will get back to this oneWink
