rock climb - climbing anchors workshop/class - June 18, 2011

A workshop for learning and practicing building climbing anchors. We will focus on trad anchors, with a brief review of bolted anchors. We will cover some rappel anchor options for canyoneering and mountaineering in passing, but this is not a class dedicated to those specialties. Participants will practice building climbing anchors for bolted and trad applications on real rock. Expect to spend most of the day fiddling with gear, equalization schemes, and force diagrams. Bring a harness, anchor tie-in system, and your rack. Helmets strongly recommended. The $20 class fee goes entirely to the WMC rope fund.
