Overhang

An overhang is a part of rock or wall that is jutting out and overhanging. These can range from a subtle incline to a horizontal slab overhead. Overhang climbs often require good technique and strength to complete successfully. The climber should attempt to anchor their feet onto holds where possible to minimise the amount of effort required on the hands and arms. Overhang climbing indoors can be a good method of enforcing good foot placement and balance especially when the climber is relatively new to climbing.
