Rock Climbing Anchors – Bolt Anchors

March 17 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm CST

$69 – $79

Learn the basics of building climbing anchor systems. We will cover climbing gear, knots, evaluation and use of fixed protection, aka bolt anchors, and equalizing the forces on the anchor. This is a hands on program where you will build climbing and rappelling anchors. This outing will focus on construction and assessment of anchors and not on climbing movement.

* Learn how to identify and build effective, solid climbing anchors
* Learn about two bolt anchors
* Practice climbing and/or rappelling on anchors built by you to build confidence
* Learn about common gear used to build climbing anchors and how it can be used in a variety of different environments

PLEASE NOTE: This is a hands-on, ground-based class. You will not be climbing on the anchors you create. This class will take place at Reimers Ranch Park where there is a $10 cash entrance fee. You will receive a pre-course email from our Austin Outdoor School Staff 2-3 days before your class with more information about what to expect from the class, what to bring, where to meet, etc..
