Topic - Advice, Belaying a BIG beginner on a indoor wall

scotlass - on 20 May 2012
Ok folks the situation is this, I will be taking a 6'4 18 stone body builder type and a 14 year old 8 stone kid climbing next weekend at an indoor wall. they are both complete beginners so I will be doing all the belaying, I'am 5'6 and about 10 stone so you can see where the problem is.

I have a few ideas of how to achieve this, such as going up and putting an extra twist at the top or maybe putting my line through the bottom runner so he can only pull me up so far but as the UKC head is better than one I would like your advice or better ideas that you may have.

The wall has no floor anchors or weighted sand bags.

Thanks for your help guys
