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 Margaret Wheeler demonstrates a few different methods on how to assist the second while belaying from above.
