Advanced Anchor Building
$105.00 – $165.00
New for 2019 :: Sliding Scale Course Fees | Women’s Wilderness has created a sliding scale for all its Women’s programs in an effort to keep our courses affordable to a wide range of people. All our pricing scales are significantly below the prices of for-profit companies. The top price represents the actual cost to run the course, and the second two tiers represent scholarships. We set forth no criteria and trust that each individual will pay what they feel is appropriate.
To be a self-sufficient climber, you must be able to build solid anchors, and knowing how to build anchors in a variety of situations expands your climbing options. Our AMGA-certified guides will teach you the skills to build safe and secure anchors on bolts, natural features, and with trad gear in this ground-school course.
This course focuses on the following skills:
- Principles of building anchors
- Belaying from above
- Building anchors on bolts and fixed gear
- Assessing and using natural features (trees, boulders)
- Placing passive and active protection for anchors
- Building anchors off trad gear
