Rope Climb

Sorry if this is the incorrect place to post this, but does anyone have any good ideas as to how or where to practice climbing a rope? I live in an apartment and don't have any ceiling high enough to mount a rope.

Re: Rope Climb

I'd suggest a place that has a high enough ceiling to mount a rope.

Rumor has it that some Crossfit gyms offer this..........

Re: Rope Climb

You can take the rope from the DIY project in the journal and schlep it to the nearest park where hopefully they have trees.

Re: Rope Climb

Or buy a rope for very cheap (knotandrope.com), eye splice it yourself, and throw it over a high branch.

Re: Rope Climb

Do you think I could get in trouble for doing that to a tree at a park? I obviously wouldn't be able to get the rope off of the branch unless I brought a ladder or something.

If you tie a smaller rope to the eyelet of the rope, you can pull on it to bring it down.

In Cali, I wouldn't be surprised to see you charged with a hate crime for violating that tree's civil rights.
