Finding a resting spot during a long climb is a great relief. But resting is a little more complicated than just sitting still for a minute. Some of the best resting spots, or stances, are places where you can stem. Corners are great as well, because you can stem and lean back. Resting time is a good time to chalk up.
When you can't stem or find a corner, hanging from a straight arm with foot support is best. You can shake out the arm not holding on, then switch, and shake the other out. After shaking your arms a little, chalking up before you move on is a good idea. Check the process out by watching this movie:
If you find yourself in a resting spot, take the break - you might need it later. Don't try to rest in strenuous spot, it is best to keep moving when you are climbing. If you stop, you might not be able to get going again![an error occurred while processing this directive]
