Topic - Rope put through belay device incorrectly!!!

Big Z on 22 Mar 2013
Hi UKCers,

Me and my climbing partner took a friend of ours indoor climbing yesterday. He has climbed with us several times and we thought it was time to teach him to belay.

When he passed the rope through the belay device he had it the wrong way round ie. the live rope facing the floor and the dead rope facing up. Obviously i saw this and corrected it before my buddy started climbing but i am wondering what the consequences would be if i hadn't seen it?

Would it just twist the belay loop round and correct itself or would it be much worse than that?
