Learn to utilize natural features to build an equalized and efficient rock climbing anchor. In this hands-on program you'll learn to confidently identify natural anchor points that you can use to build top rope climbing anchors. We'll cover all of the necessary knots for attaching your rope to natural objects, how to practice good cliff safety techniques, and how to identify and build a solid and redundant rock climbing anchor. This class is designed for those with some prior top rope climbing experience who are comfortable belaying others. All anchor building supplies are provided by REI, but please bring your own climbing harness if you have one.
