Topic - New to Lead- Question about placing protection

AwfullyBigAdventure - on 24 Jun 2013
Hi all,

Sorry if this is a stupid question

I am fairly new to climbing, been indoor and outdoor bouldering for a few years and just moving onto the ropes now. I have done an intermediate course on setting up for basic top roping, and I have a good understanding of ropes, slings, carabiners etc but I am now reading up on nut, hexes, and cramming devises.

Obviously I will not use them until taking a course but my stupid question is... once placed in the rock, what is to stop them from moving upwards as the climber ascends and coming loose?

Thanks
ABA
