Video: The World’s Best Belayer

Ray Verseau is recognized by many climbers as “the best belayer in the world.”

For him, belaying is more than a skill, it is a lifestyle. We had the chance to meet this master and listen to his passion for The Art of the Belay.

“When he belayed me, and I sent my route, I actually broke down in tears […] I had never experienced anything like that, and it changed my life,” says Dave Graham.
