11. Partner Communication

In this video we review an important consideration for partner communication when multi-pitch trad climbing.

When using verbal commands during a climb, be sure to say your partner’s name along with the command. This helps make sure that commands don’t get mixed up or mistaken for other climbers in a situation where there are other teams/groups climbing nearby.

We hope you found this video helpful. Feel free to comment below with questions or thoughts!


Please remember, climbing is inherently dangerous. Climb at your own risk.
