Top Roping: When the rope runs from the belayer, up to an anchor system at the top of the climb, and then back down to the climber. This is a great place to start climbing, or expand your world from the bouldering wall.

Lead Climbing: When the rope starts at the bottom of the climb and the climber leads the rope up the climb, clipping it to anchor points along the way. This is the most technical climbing, because there are many things to think about while performing it. This is also the type of climbing that can take you around the world and to the best places. You must be an experienced top-rope climber, and be able to comfortably climb 5.10 before taking this class.
