Confused by anchor building? Here Paul demonstrates the various different ways of attaching yourself to an anchor.

ANCHORS

 

When building an anchor always try to belay where you can see your 2nd. When building anchors, "big is best", unless it's a huge non-moving block, then a minimum of 2 pieces of gear must be used to construct an anchor.

 

Use the principle of  IDEAS to build an anchor:

 

INDEPENDENT

if one fails, it won't shock load the other parts of the system.

DIRECTION

of the climber

EQUALIZED

tension on all strands of the sling or rope

ANGLE

ideally 60' but max 90'

SOLID

gear and rock

Check and double check before you commit anyone to a system.
