In roping and climbing climbers are attached to a rope that passes through an anchor system at the top of the climbing structure down to the belayer present at the bottom of the structure. The anchor system at the top of the climb can often be reached through other means such as hiking or accessing the top of the structure. The belayer at the bottom holds the slack rope during the climb, so that if the climber loses their grip on the rope, they would not fall more than just a short distance.

Rope climbing is the common climbing technique used in situations where other methods are unsafe or environmentally damaging. It is also one of the main methods used within rescue missions or military operations.
