Anchor construction and anchor evaluation are key components for any rock climber wishing to advance their risk management, and ultimately their skills, on the rock. Apex Mountain School’s professional guides will teach you diverse techniques for building effective anchor systems in a multitude of climbing scenarios that you might face when top roping, lead climbing and multi pitch climbing.
