GYM TOP ROPE CLIMBING

This ClimbingTechTips video series teaches straightforward steps for Gym Top Rope Climbing. A climber’s first roped experience typically occurs via Top Roping, often in a gym setting. Even the best climbers in the world usually started with Top Roping.

Gym Top Rope Climbing is an approachable category of the sport. Climbing gyms offer the required personal gear, plus the climbing ropes and anchors are already in place. Supplemental instruction is available, as needed. These beginner skills are building blocks for all indoor and outdoor roped climbing. Newer climbers (or anyone needing a skills refresher) should view and understand our entire Gym Top Roping video series before attempting to gym climb.

Let’s get started! Our Gym Top Rope Climbing video series is below. Be careful, and have fun!
