you can still slam into the wall on dead vertical falls ... i know someome with a broken ankle to prove it ... on a nice shinny rope from the first fall of the day

simply giving slack isnt always practical or advisable depending on the situation

and if a person believe that all they need to do is "give slack" you can still slam a lighter climber into the wall if its slightly slabby to slightly overhangingif you happen to give a very static (fight the fall by sitting back) belay at the moment the rope comes taut .... yes ive seen injuries from that as well

note that most the souces i posted including petzl, ukclimbing, doug hunter/dan hague, the UIAA link jim posted ... as well as all the people here who sport climb alot ... say or imply that simply giving slack isnt the answer ...

its the "trad" climbers that do
