What is roof climbing and what are the basic equipment needed to start rock climbing safely?
Roof climbing is not the typical “roof climbing” that you imagine when people climb up their houses to fix a leaking roof or install an antenna.
Roof climbing is a type of rock climbing wherein the climber is parallel to the ground as they climb as opposed to the usual vertical climbing wherein the climber is horizontal to the ground as they ascend.
An overhang is a rock formation that slopes more than 90 degrees so that it’s almost horizontal or perpendicular to the ground. Overhangs that are nearly horizontal are called “roofs.”
