How to Not Deck
Report this Post
Can't Post

The only people I've seen deck have been female with a female belayer.

Also, the most dreaded belays I have ever received have come from women.

So who would you rather have belay you? Of course its better to look down and get a sneak peak at some cleavage if you aren't already hooking up with the belayer, but on a hard climb that you don't want to deck on: Would you rather have a man or woman belay you?

I prefer a competent belayer, regardless of undercarriage. The only times I've decked, I was belayed by a man. And every time I've come close with a female belayer, the belayer did their damndest to keep me off the ground, regardless.

What the hell is going on in that picture? Maybe the dude is weight testing the rope near the ground to make sure his belayer knows what she is doing?

I should make this a policy for my own protection as well?

I've had a girl take a swing into thorn bushes and a buddy take a thump on a gigantic fallen tree on a trad lead. Climb with people who aren't going to spook and drop the rope at the first sign of a broken nail (men included), and you won't have a problem.

Believe me, they're out there. The kind that will spaz out if they forget their toothbrush for a weekend trip or that can't stay somewhere without running water.

are you worried tha the woman is incompetant or that because she's lighter than you she comes off the ground and then you deck?

If you're worried about your belayers capability and you're still letting them belay you then you're the problem... not your belayer
