Confident Outdoor Climber Series - Climbing Anchors


Wednesday, February 17, 2021
5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Allendale Campus
Faculty, Staff, Students




The skills presented in this workshop will give climbers a foundation of anchor building knowledge that can be used in many climbing applications. This course will focus on the equipment and techniques necessary to build a quality anchor, using natural protection (e.g. trees) at our two most popular nearby crags: the Ledges (Grand Ledge, MI) and Devil's Lake State Park (Baraboo, WI). The former is a top-rope only site while the latter requires climbers to either setup a top-rope or to traditionally lead the climbs. This course does not include placing traditional protection.

Format: Hybrid online/ in-person. Online content for this workshop will be made available to participants & is expected to be reviewed prior to the in-person meeting.

Cost: $10 students; $35 faculty/ staff
