Hello my name is Scott and I'm the owner of Climb On indoor rock climbing gym in Wilmington, North Carolina. Today we are going to discuss making rope climbing nets. Anything that has to do with ropes or climbing can be inherently dangerous and result in serious injury or death. You want to make sure that you get proper instruction from a qualified professional on how this is done. Making a rope climbing net can be done by using retired ropes or buying new ropes. Once you weave them together and use the correct friction knots to lace them up you are going to want to hang it in an area where the ground is soft where you have got padding or mulch to take the fall. The other thing that you can do is use a Bollaire if you are on a high rope course where climbing nets are prevalent. If you are not using a Bollaire and a Belay system you are going to want to make sure that you have got a spotter and good pads. Again I can't stress enough how important it is to get the proper instruction from your local indoor rock climbing gym, your high ropes course facilitator, or your high ropes course place of business. With that knowledge it can be fun and safe. Thank you and this has been building rope climbing nets.
