Crux Academy has partnered with Yosemite National Park and the Yosemite Conservancy to bring you a series of video tutorials to help keep you safe and alive while climbing.watch tips
Climbing is dangerous. National Park Service rangers in Yosemite have been involved with hundreds of climbing rescues since the sport gained popularity in the 1960s.
Since the year 2000 alone, Yosemite rangers and rescuers have responded to at least 37 climbing-related fatalities.
However, climbers can reduce their margin of error and stay safe by learning best practices.
Yosemite teamed up with a few of your favorite climbing experts — Emily Harrington, Beth Rodden, and Tommy Caldwell — for a series of short climbing safety videos that can dramatically improve your ability to stay alive while climbing.
This series was made possible in part by the support of Yosemite Conservancy donors in collaboration with Yosemite National Park , Louder Than 11, and Crux Academy.
