rock climbing 198 - intermediate skills - June 16, 2018

A workshop to learn the necessary skills for setting & cleaning top rope anchors, following on multi-pitch climbs, and some useful knots for climbers. Helmets are required. The workshop will cover setting up and cleaning a 2-bolt top rope anchor using WMC anchor kit, including the rappel; rope packaging techniques with and without rope bags; techniques for attaching to an anchor for multi-pitch changeovers; clove hitch, munter hitch, prussik (& autoblock) knots. This workshop is particularly valuable for newer climbers needing an introduction to these topics, but more experienced climbers are welcome to come refresh skills and help show new climbers techniques. Bring helmet, harness, belay/rappel setup; personal anchor, slings, prussik cords, friction hitch materials, and spare locking carbiners if you have them. Please RSVP to make sure enough ropes show up. There is a $10 suggested donation for this workshop.
