The common misconception is that rock climbing is for the more “experienced” rock climbers who have been climbing for years and know how to safely and efficiently use the rock face they are climbing. The truth is rock climbing and skydiving can be extremely dangerous if not done properly and as a beginner. There are many ways you can injure yourself if you choose to try the two sports together. These sports do not make good companionship partners.
When you decide to take on either sport, it’s very important to plan carefully and purchase the proper amount of skydiving equipment. Purchasing the wrong kind of skydiving gear or too much can be just as hazardous as being ill with any kind of disease. You want to take your time when looking around for skydiving equipment, because this will ensure that you get exactly what you need. Make sure to do your homework, because you don’t want to end up injured and unable to enjoy your next skydiving adventure.
Find A Reputable Dealer
First, I would advise you to find a reputable dealer. This doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune, but you do want to buy from a reputable dealer. I would suggest that you check with your local insurance agent. If they refuse to cover the cost of your skydiving adventure, I would look elsewhere. You should also look for rock climbing clubs in your area that will provide training for the both sports in order to help ensure you are as safe as possible.
Train Yourself Before Attempt To Climb The Rock Face
Next, it is highly recommended that you train for a while before you attempt to climb the rock face. This will help you be prepared for anything. It will also ensure you have enough strength and stamina to make it up the climbing wall without injury. Just remember to take it easy, and take your time, because a lot of this experience will be spent on the ground.
Once you have trained for at least a week, I would consider renting some equipment, such as ropes, skydiving gear, and possibly an all-inclusive guide. Always remember that when skydiving, safety comes first, and the less equipment you use, the better. Also, you will want to go with someone who has more experience than you do. This is especially important if you are a novice to rock climbing.
If you decide this type climbing adventure is for you, I recommend you book a trip with a reputable rock climbing company. A lot of companies will offer discounted prices if you book your trip with them. This way you will not only be able to afford the climbing equipment, but also the experience as well. You can save money over the cost of the actual climbing climb itself. If you are serious about trying to rock climbing, I hope you take the time to consider this type of trip.
