Want to go climbing outside but don’t have all the skills needed? Interested in learning more about climbing and the safest way to set up a rope? Come to our anchor building clinic and we will teach you all that and more!

Meet at the Witt Wall. We will begin with an overview of anchors and the different types of anchors used in rock climbing. Then we will demonstrate how to build each anchor and give participants an opportunity to try it out themselves.
