I wish I could make this open to everyone, but I'm limited by student-instructor ratios, so I need to keep this to just who I've worked with before.  Thank you everyone for understanding!

A workshop on different anchor types, rigging them, and the tradeoffs they make.  I highly recommend reading one of the "Climbing Anchors" books ahead of time, either the Craig Luebben one or the John Long one, and/or watching my giant youtube video:

Required Equipment

Required Equipment

Bring your harness with the gear you would have on a Basic rock climb.  Also, bring at least one cordelette.  The preferred cordelette is 7mm nylon or polyester accessory cord, cut to a length of roughly 21 feet, and tied in a giant loop with a double-fishermans knot.  Alternatively, 20 feet of Bluewater Titan cord (which is 5.5mm cord with a dyneema core) is also acceptable as a cordelette for this.
