Rock Climbing Anchors
At Apex Mountain School, we place great value in seeing our guests move forward with their own climbing skills and ambitions. We love to hear about your own climbing dreams and we are excited to help you make them a reality.
Anchor building and evaluation are crucial components of rock climbing and are fundamental skills necessary for anyone who is looking to get out on the rock without the assistance of a guide. In this anchor building course, Apex Mountain School’s professional guides will teach you a diverse array of techniques for constructing secure anchors in a multitude of climbing scenarios including top roping, lead climbing, and multi-pitch climbing.
- Building anchors with natural and artificial gear
- Top rope anchors
- ERNEST anchor evaluation
- Fixed gear use
- Discussion of rock types and density
- Load forces and fall factors
Apex’s rock climbing anchors course is offered to all ages and fitness levels. No previous anchor building experience is required. A private guide, and all technical rock climbing gear (rock climbing shoes, ropes, helmets, harnesses, etc.) are included.
