climbing with a helmet is one of the most basic things you can do to reduce you risk ...

of course helmets dont guarantee that youre "safe" ... and theres tons of people who id climb with who dont wear a helmet generally over those who do ...

but boinking your head is not a uncommon injury in climbing ... and even if the protection isnt perfect its better than nothing

petzl has Tales from the Edge - Helmet Close Calls

go read it ....

dont let any RCer make the decision for you ...

just keep in mind that the decision is that of you AND your partner ... as youll be belaying him/her ... and if you get konked out by a rock he/she will be the one dealing with it ...
