Rock Climbing Anchors
The first step to being an independent climber is learning how to set up top-ropes. Setting up rock climbing anchors upon which your and others’ lives depend must be done correctly. This one-day class teaches you how to build a variety or rock climbing anchors. These anchors will range from single top rope anchors to advanced multi-pitch anchors.
