Participant Information


I plan to go to a climbing area with easily accessible top anchor bolts.  If required, we'll split the group into those that want to begin climbing immediately and those that want to *REVIEW* and *PRACTICE* building top rope anchors at bolted stations.  We'll most likely continue afterword to climb there but we might move to a nearby area with more challenging "sport" or mixed  (crack and bolts) routes.  I expect there will be opportunities for leading as well as top-roping... depending skill levels. Location may change depending on conditions, group size and skill level.


If you are a NEW climber, please note that every participant on this trip must have *at least* some recent top roping experience, either indoors or outdoors.  Those new to climbing are encouraged to take an indoor intro climbing course and/or an outdoor intro climbing course from a qualified instructor.


All participants must bring their own personal climbing gear... including: harness, belay device, locking biner, climbing shoes, and helmet.  Please be aware that on my trips,  no helmet = no climbing.  Also highly recommended is a prussic for rappelling, a PAS (personal anchor system) for securing yourself, plenty of water and energy snacks.  Ropes & anchor material for this event are provided by participants and not by the club. If you have a full strength climbing rope and anchor material, please do bring it.


Our goal will be to review how NOT to build an anchor, as well as how to build safe "redundant" anchors for single-pitch Top Roping routes with a bolted station. We will NOT be covering advanced topics such as 3 & 4 point "Trad" anchors or "quick" multi-pitch bolted anchor building techniques.
