Top-rope Set Up & Management

After work you need to climb - for fun or for sanity.
So whom do you climb with?
This full day course will teach you to set up basic top-ropes so you and your friend or relatives* can start climbing on your own. (Relatives can be friends, it depends on your family.)
Now that you are on your own, the responsibility is yours. From the approach, to the walk out, we will help prepare you to climb on your own. Available for climbers interested in learning how to properly set-up top ropes.
