Top Rope Anchors
Top Rope Anchors are a very important part of climbing outdoors, specially if you are not a lead climber quite yet. Also, it’s a very important skill to master and to have available in your tool-belt. For rappelling, for TR, etc… you will need to know how to survey your area and your potential anchors, either natural or artificial.
This course will teach you all the specific skills that you need to do all of the above mentioned.
I have a very good video on YouTube that will teach you one method, but there are many more and it’s very important to know how to use whatever material you have on hand to set anchors and to know what you can use as natural anchors.
Transferring Safely to a Rappel System
Rappelling off of a TR system can be a challenge. Using this technique it becomes smooth and easy, not to mention that you will be much safer!
Reaching the summit of Iztaccihuatl
Last summer of 2014 we summited the 7th (or so) highest point in north America once again. It was a beautiful day!
