As part of its mission to teach the correct fundamentals of climbing, the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) has produced this series of instructional videos. The videos cover a range of necessary climbing techniques from belaying, to rappelling and anchoring.
Here, IFMGA/AMGA Mountain Guide and instructor Jeff Ward explains the proper skills of belaying a lead climber.
