As we are getting further into climbing, we will focus on climbing on top-rope and on second-position climbling. These two techniques are essential in the initiation to climbing. You will use the top-rope continuously and you will need the second escalation in the future, to be able to start climbing first. This last method will allow you to feel the adrenaline and enjoy climbing and nature with complete confidence. When you climb second, you climb up after the first climber (who is usually more experienced), and your rope comes out of your harness up. With this we get security when climbing, since, even if you fall, you have the certainty that your fall will be just a few centimeters.
