Hi everyone, I'm not sure whether there's any rock climbers here. I've just started climbing about 3 months ago, going for my first outdoor adventure next week in Gua Musang. Problem is I'm quite heavy at 106kg, and it's difficult to find a belayer for me. Yesterday I was belayed by someone half my weight, and when I've finished the route and let go, the guy was sent flying and actually passed me. If it wasn't for others who grabbed the other end of the rope, he would have been sent to the anchor and then it would have been an awkward situation and he would have to rappel himself down.

Outdoors there wouldn't be any weight bags. One of my friends mentioned that it is possible to belay using 2 people, I'm just having trouble trying to wrap my head around that idea. Any sifus here know how it is done?
