Common Terms
Falling: Use when the climber is not able to hang on any longer and going to slip off from the wall.
Coming down: Use when climber is ready to come down.
Watch me: Use when the climber is going to do a skip/jump on the wall (Stunts)
Take in: Use by climber when he/she feel that there is no tension on the rope.
Feed: Use when the climber want to have less tension on rope (Not too much)

Always

- lock-down at all time.
- have eyes on the climber at all time.
- ask climber not to hold on to the Knot/Carabiner/Rope.
- ensure there is no hard or sharp objects on you when wearing a harness or helmet (pockets emptied, no hair clips/pins).
- wear helmet at all time inside the zone
- ensure safety of climber and belay team at all time
