Question

In the figure, a climber leans out against a vertical ice wall that has negligible friction. Distance a is 0.975 m and distance L is 1.90 m. His center of mass is distance d = 0.91 m from the feet-ground contact point. If he is on the verge of sliding, what is the coefficient of static friction between feet and ground?
