Introduction to Rock – Top Rope Anchors Combo
This course combines the 1 day Introduction to Climbing course with the Top rope Anchor course in the same weekend. It is perfect for individuals who have not climbed before and want to learn all of the basics which will allow them to start top-roping on their own. It is also a great way to transition from indoor climbing.
Day one will focus on the topics of cliff safety and proper equipment use and care. Participants will focus on foundational skill building. This will include basic knots, belay skills, climbing technique and rappelling.
Day two will introduce the the concept of anchor integrity and how to asses it. Participants will practice bolt anchor construction, tree anchor construction and multi-point anchor construction. Participants will continue to practice and build on the skills from day one.
By the end of the weekend successful participants should feel comfortable in setting up their own Top rope systems and climbing outdoors with a partner of equal or greater ability.
