 the Top Rope Online Course really gave me systematic insights in what is good and what is less good, and it also shows lots of different ways of looking at things. To me it was a good investment. I did quite some top rope solo before but after this course i am changing my devices and the whole setup. There are lots of possibilities but at least now i have a deeper insight in the whole matter. In this group there is a lot of help from a lot of different points of view, scrolling and reading through comments is surely very very helpful, but not as systematic as the course.
