Top Rope Solo Climbing
Caution! Top rope solo climbing is
an advanced technique. Do not attempt it unless you are
very knowledgeable and experienced with climbing and rope rigging. You need to know
much more than the system shown on this page to be safe. For example, if you fall
and are hanging from the belay devices, do you know how to unweight the devices
and setup a lowering system to get down? The details of this system are important.
If you do not understand the reasons for the specific gear choices in this setup,
do not use it.
This is my current system for top rope solo climbing. It is modeled after the system
described by Petzl here.
