Looking for pointers and gear advice for top rope solo. Whats needed? Is it safe? I do not know much about it but I have heard of people doing it. Jon Powell

There have been plenty of threads about this subject. A quick search of MP forums (using the MP search function) will produce results. FrankPS

It's as safe as you are... You need to fully grasp the intent and limitations of the gear you use for it. Guys have gotten hurt failing to predict how gear will behave and/or fail if used in a solo self-belay setup... Very few pieces are designed specifically for that, most guys just rig up their own systems using one or some of the various ascenders on the market. Nothing wrong with it, just understand it. Ben B
