Why you should wear a helmet (whilst sport climbing)

This one goes out to everyone that’s tired of us preaching about the value of wearing helmets. The choice is yours.
FYI: Two days later @tola.etchar_974 (age 13) got back on Monster (29/7c+) and sent. Bravo!

    Yup. And goes for the belayer as well. Even on “clean” routes I’ve seen rocks coming loose…

    Personally think everyone should wear full PPE at the crags. Helmet, long sleeve shirt, capped shoes, dust mask, ear plugs and protective glasses. Seems like everyone has stopped caring about general safety and only focus on having a goodles time in the mountains away from societies demanding constraints

      Ebert’s comment is another reason why you should wear a helmet. Brain damage.

        The dust mask is the most important piece of kit. So that you don’t inhale the smoke from the joint that the guy next to you is smoking.
