Rock Climbers Shock Force Calculator

This calculator will determine the fall factor and impact force on a climber, given specifications of rope, weight, and distance from last anchor. The fall factor is the ratio of the distance you fall to the length of the rope. The highest fall factor possible is a 2, which puts the maximum strain on your rope. A fall factor of 1 is moderate, and a fall factor of less than 1 is light. The force of your shock is dependent upon the fall factor, your weight, and the type of rope you use. Dynamic rope considerably decreases the shock a climber feels because it has the ability to stretch and absorb more of the force.
