5.5 Hr - Top Rope Anchors Refresher Clinics

Review the skills that will allow you to safely protect yourself in order to approach a cliff edge, build, rappel and climb from sound top-rope anchor systems.

Top Rope Anchors Refresher Clinics are ideal for climbers who have previous top rope anchors training/experience, are competent belayers but need to be assured their current skills are correct. Review the skills required to safely approach a cliff edge, build either simple or complex anchor systems using fixed or natural anchor points and rappel using back-up systems. Please note this abbreviated course does not provide an opportunity to climb although a belay and communication review is included. Clients without previous Top Rope Anchors training should consider either our one-day Top Rope Anchors or our two-day Basic Rock Courses.
