Roped solo climbing or rope soloing is a form of solo climbing without a climbing partner, but with the safety of rope protection.


Potential danger

Roped soloing is much less dangerous than free soloing but more dangerous than climbing with a partner. Significant modifications from partnered safety procedures are required. Also, in case of an accident, sometimes there is no one to go for help. It can also be tedious, as the climber must ascend each section of rock twice: once to add the next belay anchor, then again after descending to remove the previous one, traveling the route three times.[1]
