Description

Top Rope Rock Climbing is an individual sport that involves suspending a rope from an anchor located at the top of a short climb. The climber ties into one end of the rope and is belayed by his belayer who manages the other end of the rope. Top rope rock climbing, also referred to as top roping, is a style of climbing involving a rope running from a belayer at the bottom of the climbing route up to an anchor at the top of the rock and back down to the climber. This style of climbing is seen as a safer form because climbers will generally only fall a few feet allowing them to attempt more difficult routes. This style is the one most often used in indoor rock climbing facilities.
