Build an anchor wherever you are, and give yourself the skills to start ticking the 2000+ trad routes in the Blue Mountains.
Trad Climbing requires the climber to build safe anchors using removable and natural protection. Trad anchors are technically more challenging than sports anchors and require a greater degree of problem solving.
This skills course is the second in a two part series and together provides the minimum skills required to undertake trad climbing on your own.
What we will cover:
– types of anchors,
– anchor planning,
– assessing an anchor
– logistics of the belay station
– belaying from an anchor,
– safety and risk management.
Who is this course for:
– Those who have completed Trad Skills 1 or equivalent
When and where:
– Sun 7 Nov, Mt Piddington (TBC)
Preference will be given to participants who are able to attend both sessions. Places for this trip will be finalised after the 26th Sep when the ‘Exposure to Trad’ trip will be run. This course will be run by James & Cedric.
