Rock Climbing

Rock 2 - Top Rope Anchors

Learn the necessary skills to safely protect yourself in order to build, belay, climb and rappel from your own sound top-rope anchor systems.

Acquire the skills, knowledge and confidence required to safely begin top rope climbing outdoors. This course is ideal for gym climbers or climbers who have previously relied on others to set up their top-rope anchor systems for them. Learn how to safely approach a cliff edge, build both simple and complex anchor systems using fixed and natural anchor points, rappel using back-up systems, belay and communicate effectively. This intensive course will focus primarily on skill development with limited opportunities to climb. Clients requiring additional time to rehearse these skill sets plus the desire to develop their movement skills should consider our 2-day Basic Rock Course.
