Advanced Anchors & Rigging...

Advanced Anchors & Rigging covers techniques used when obvious bomber anchor selection is limited, the canyon demands advanced rigging, groups must deal with tricky starts, and improvising available resources to safely keep the team making forward progress. Many unbolted or seemingly barren canyons typically offer a feature that can be rigged or natural resources to begin several variations of construction projects. This workshop focuses on the principals of advanced canyon anchor building, identifying natural anchor choices, advanced rigging scenarios, common anchor construction projects, soft starts, and working to safely meet the demands of the team.



We will spend the day focusing on a very particular set of skills using a hands on approach that allows each individual to practice and master the techniques presented.
