Bottom roping is a top rope set up where the belayer is at the bottom. Just like an indoor wall.

I thought that was top roping Miles?

Again, the climbing culture up here in Scotland must be different but 'darn sarf' we called that kind of set-up bottom-roping. Top-roping was where the belayer is at the top of the route which I don't think is as bad as it is at least similar to seconding. I always cringe though when I see the type of set up I witnessed at Craigmore. Oh well, cest la vie and all that! When in Rome etc...

Hi Miles I don't think its a cultural thing...more just my stupidity!
