Clipping the belay

Postby CaldeBeer » Tue Jan 10, 2017 9:25 pm

Hi all

Could someone please explain what it means to "clip the belay" in the context of this article. After reading it I still don't understand what it means to do that.

The belay will consist out of pieces of gear.

Clip the rope through one of these pieces, as you would for any normal piece while climbing on lead, as you leave the stance.
