    REI Members get back an estimated $ 2.50 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    • Authors: John Long and Bob Gaines
    • Softcover; 225 pages; black-and-white photographs
    • The Globe Pequot Press; copyright 2013
    • Find out how to place protection and construct secure anchors with this easy-to-understand guide that takes you through each technique, step-by-step
    • This updated version is illustrated with more than 100 photographs to enhance understanding of each piece of gear and each technique
    • Sized as a reference guide you'd want to use away from the wall or crag, Climbing Anchors measures 9 x 6 in.

    The new edition of Climbing Anchors provides comprehensive, up-to-date and easy-to-understand information on how to place protection and construct secure anchors to safeguard your life. John Long, the author of the definitive instructional manual How to Rock Climb!, applies the same clear, concise and entertaining prose to this updated and illustrated edition.

    Learn how to place and configure solid, secure anchors in a variety of real-world climbing situations, and see the pros and cons of many options. Natural anchors, passive chocks, camming units, fixed gear, knots, belay anchors, top rope anchors and rappel anchors are all discussed in detail.

    In addition, the crucial dynamics of equalization and fall forces are thoroughly investigated, including an analysis of rigging systems. Tests conducted specifically for this book detail the true performance parameters of the cordelette, sliding X, and equalette, challenging the “traditional wisdom” that guided choices in the past—and was often wrong.

    Completely updated and accompanied by all new color photos, Climbing Anchors provides the essential knowledge needed for climbers to create safe, simple and efficient rock climbing anchoring systems.
