Top Rope Solo Climbing

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 upside down 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.
