Rappelling Belays


Rappelling belays are not essential when rappelling, but they are highly recommended. Belays add an extra level of safety for the rappeller in the event that the rappeller loses control and starts to fall. There are three main types of rappelling belays: a top rope belay, a fireman belay, and an autoblock.
