Top Roping

Top roping is a form of rock climbing in which a rope is connected to an anchor system at the top of the route. The climber is then attached to the rope while a belayer stands on the ground feeding rope up to the climber and holding the rope in the event of the climber falling. This system ensures that the climber canêt fall very far and as such makes top roping perfect for climbing difficult or potentially hazardous routes. Top roping is very popular with inexperienced climbers as they can focus on the route upwards rather than having to think about adequate places to place fall protection devices..
