Auto belays are fantastic devices that allow you to climb roped walls without a human belayer. Instead, you clip into a rope or a webbing which is linked to the auto belay device fixed at the top of the climbing wall. You can then start climbing freely, if you fall or finish the climb, the auto belay lowers you to the ground at a slow, controlled rate.
And great news, the self-regulating braking system has minimal variation in descent rate across the user weight range (Climber Weight Range: 10-140 kg / 22-309 lbs). So kids and adults can climb together!

And remember the n°1 rule: always clip in before climbing.
