Bottom/Top-Roping Courses

Bottom/Top-Roping Courses

We provide indoor and outdoor bottom-roping courses and outdoor top-roping course. (A bottom-rope is when the rope is already hanging there and ready to be used, belaying of the climber happens from the bottom of the climb.) In these courses you will learn the essential skills and techniques from belaying safely and connecting to the rope (Basic Course) to setting up your own outdoor top-rope and/or bottom-rope systems (Full Course). Each course has it’s own focus, being “Basic” or “Full Bottom/Top-Roping”. The “Full Outdoor Bottom/Top-Roping” course is more intensive with more skills and therefore a longer course.
