At some point we all struggle to find climbing partners, have a partner bail, or just want to climb alone. Top-rope soloing, when applied correctly, offers a safe way to get some laps in on the rock when no partners are available. In this course we introduce the devices that can be used, fixing a rope to mitigate friction when in use for rope soloing, transferring to rappel, and the other minute and yet very specific details required to make it a safe option to climb on your own. This course addresses:

  • Risks and how to manage them when climbing alone
  • Top rope anchors for fixed ropes
  • Micro ascenders
  • Back up systems
  • Rope abrasion mitigation
  • Directional placements and uses
  • Rappel/descents and transfers
