Belaying: Belaying is the action of controlling and managing a rope for a climber. Typically belaying is done with the use of a belay device. With the belay device, a belayer can safely catch a falling climber.

Top Rope Climbing: Top rope climbing (or top roping) is normally considered the safest climbing system. It is where a rope is attached to a belayer, goes above through a secure anchor, and finally down towards the climber who is attached to the other end.
