Unclip first drawers - belay more dynamic 

I heard about a minor accident yesterday due to hard belaying. The route starts on top of a pile of stones with the first quick draw very low. This means if you do not unclip the first drawers, it is very hard to stay away from the rock and belay dynamic.

In theory, whenever the first quickdraw is very low, you should consider unclip it as this will increase your possibility to belay dynamic. You should practice such belaying indoors before trying it outdoors. An easy way to create a dynamic fall is actually to bend your legs, in critical situations, as this will reduce the risk to get frightened and sit down during impact. decreasing the softness of the fall.
