The 49 kg climber is supported in the "chimney" by the friction forces exerted on his shoes and back. The climber has reduced push to verge of slip. The static coefficients of friction between his shoes and the wall, and between his back and the wall, are 1.2 and 0.8, respectively. What is the magnitude of the push he must exert? What fraction of the climbers weight is supported by the frictional force on his shoes?
