Intro to Toproping // 2021

Learn all the basics of toproping. Toproping is the act of climbing while your rope is anchored above you at the top of the climb. We will cover belay device types and their proper operation, communication/commands, tying in as a climber, belaying, and how to take small falls on a climb and catch as a belayer. At the end of this class, each student will have a clear understanding of all the elements of toproping on an already set up toprope. This class will consist of one full day held outside at a local Seattle area crag.
