What is Top Rope?

Top rope climbing is a great way for beginners to learn how to climb, although it doesn’t come without challenges for more expert climbers looking to hone their skill. Climbers have a rope connected to their harness which runs through an anchor at the top of the route and back down to a certified belayer at the bottom of the wall. As you climb, the belayer will tighten slack and thus limit the distance you fall should you lose hold of the wall.

Why Top Rope at Sender One SNA?

With countless route options on our renowned walls, top rope climbing at Sender One SNA is great for climbers at any skill levels. Whether you’re a beginner looking to learn or an experienced climber preparing for an upcoming trip, we have ideal routes that will suit your needs.

Top Rope Climbing Guidelines

In order to top rope climb at Sender One SNA, everyone MUST have a Sender One Top Rope Belay Card visible on their harness whenever they are belaying. The top rope belay check requirements include:

  • Tie in correctly with a figure-8 follow-through knot backed up with a double overhand knot (sometimes referred to as a fisherman’s knot or double fisherman’s knot)
  • Correctly operate a Petzl GRIGRI2 belay device

Please note that we require climbers use the PBUS (pull, brake, under, slide) style of belaying.
