rock climb: sport anchor clinic - dry canyon (lindon)
THIS ACTIVITY IS LIMITED TO 4 PARTICIPANTS AND THE TWO ORGANIZERS (6 PEOPLE TOTAL). THIS ACTIVITY IS FULL. This clinic is an opportunity to watch and then practice the skills of setting up and cleaning sport toprope anchors. Additionally, the clinic will cover rappelling and lowering and the benefits of each, useful and relevant knots, rope packaging techniques with and without rope bags, and techniques for attaching to an anchor for multi-pitch changeovers. This clinic is particularly valuable for newer climbers needing an introduction to these topics, but more experienced climbers are welcome to refresh their skills and help share their techniques. Helmets are required. Additionally, participants will need a harness, belay/rappel device on a locking carabiner, personal anchor system, and prussik cord or friction hitch material. Please also bring extra slings and carabiners if available. There is a suggested $15.00 clinic donation. This outdoor clinic will last a few hours and will start early in the morning to avoid the afternoon heat. Please include in your RSVP email: full name, phone number, WMC member status, gear owned, and prior climbing experience. As suggested by public health authorities and climbing associations, be prepared for social distancing, symptom questions, and use of hand sanitizer and masks (buffs work well while climbing, belaying, and rappelling).
