Why is it called "Belay On"?
In rock climbing “Belay On” is the voice command given by a climbing partner to indicate that they are ready to support the climber in case of a slip or fall. Our promise to you is to be that supportive partner.

Every moment, every day, is [an] opportunity to start over. Climbing is a lot about dealing with what is and just figuring it out. Whatever has happened, has happened,” he says. “[It’s] learning how to improvise. Coming up with new ideas and new approaches to solve problems. Learning that you generally have to let go to move.
