Berkeley Rock Climbing Anchors & Rescue Class
If you want to learn the skills needed to confidently and competently climb outdoors, establishing anchors and working through emergency scenarios, this is a great event for you! We provide all the tools and equipment you need to become a proficient, competent and confident anchor builder in Trad, Sport and Top Rope environments. Our only requirement is that you come prepared to THINK. We will teach you proper knots, anchor techniques, site selection and belaying techniques in both top and bottom managed sites. We will geek out on the physics of anchors, angles and kilonewtons (kN). We will teach you self rescue and partner rescue techniques. We will discuss safety at the crag, the ethics of climbing outdoors, and how to identify un-safe situations to protect yourself and your climbing partners. Our team of professional guides are trained and certified by the American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA), to ensure that you're having the best educational experience, both fun and safe, possible.
