Personal protection equipment is an essential aspect of artificial wall climbing. The personal protection equipment serves as a barrier between the climber and the climbing surface, preventing injury in the event of a fall or contact with the wall. It also protects the climber from cuts and abrasions from rough or sharp edges. A helmet is advised to protect the head from impact in case of a fall, and harnesses are used to secure the climber to the wall to prevent a fall from occurring. The use of gloves also protects the hands from calluses, blisters, and cuts, which can be common in climbing. In conclusion, personal protection equipment is vital to ensure the safety and well-being of climbers while they are engaged in artificial wall climbing.
