Show Description

Bad anchors are an accident waiting to happen. Solid climbing anchors and good rope techniques can prevent falls from turning into catastrophes. Author, Craig Luebben (inventor of the Big Bro), has taught rock climbing and self-rescue for 25 years. This book is part of the Mountaineers Outdoor Expert Series, and suits intermediate to advanced climbers. It presents modern anchoring ideas and techniques for top-roping, rappelling, sport and trad climbing, and mountaineering. He covers the finer points of common anchors: removable anchors (made of climbing pro), natural anchors (trees, boulders and rock features), and fixed anchors (bolts and pitons). Photos show a variety of gear placements, accompanied by discussion of the pros and cons of each.
