Hi, welcome to my website.
My name is Michal Gorzynski I am a climbing instructor. I set up TopRope to share my passion for climbing. On the website, you can find training materials, videos, pictures and articles, which can help you to take up climbing. The materials can help you in preparation for climbing courses and review the techniques afterwards. What you can find here is useful information, recommendations and inspirations for your own endeavors.
I look forward to climbing with you.
