When looking at buying climbing ropes, they are rated to a number of "UIAA falls". What does that mean?
A stopper knot is often used to prevent rope from unexpectedly going throu some hole, such as a belay device. How would I tie a stopper knot?
In climbing, a double fisherman's knot is used to tie together two separate pieces of rope. How would I tie such a knot?
When rock-climbing, I need to set up a top-rope anchor so if I fall, it will minimize chance of injury. So, how would I safely set one up?
After I've been climbing for a while, my finger joints are very sore. Is there anything I can do to relieve that pain?
I've heard that I can take glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate supplements to prevent damage to my fingers when I'm climbing. Is it true, or is just an old wives' tale?
