In the sport of rock climbing, improper belay technique resulting from the belayer standing too far from the wall is a main source of accidents and injuries from lead climbing. This project aimed to correct human errors in lead belaying and climbing. The resulting product was the Belay Belt, a device that successfully measured the belayer’s distance from the wall and alerted the belayer when he or she exceeded a safe distance threshold.
