What is Top Rope Climbing?
Top rope climbing is a form of rock climbing where the climber is attached to a rope that moves up from a belayer to a secured point at the top and then back down again, this time to the climber. This climbing setup offers greater protection in many ways, making it perfect for beginners.
Rest assured with the security of an anchored rope above, while climbing you can still take a moment and rest on the rope whenever those keyboard pecking hands need a break. Breath easy knowing your belayer below is keeping you safe and if a slip happens, you will only fall a few inches. Top-roping is great for beginners or experienced climbers who want to push their physical limits.
