Of lemons, swans and turkeys

lemonsThe following article is from IOL Horizons back in 2009.

Belay if you will… Or, How to spot Lemons and be a Swan rather than a Turkey in climbing related activities…

I suspect some of you will have seen it, if you haven’t or,  if you have never come across The Lemon Theory related to managing risk in adventurous activities I urge you to read it.

Also see this Peer Belaying Technical Note from AALA , this outlines the pros and cons of different belay methods. A little drier but another essential read for anyone working with climbing groups.
