Adult/Child Anchor Class

Fall 2014

Let the craggin' good times roll by learning how to adeptly set outdoor climbs with your child, during this 2-day program.  This course is designed for anyone interested in climbing safely outdoors as a family. This can be the perfect add-on to your child's summer climbing course or a brand new experience. We will teach a variety of climbing anchor styles using pre-placed bolts as well as natural tree and rock anchors. For the beginner and the novice!  

 

Program Dates: November 6 & 8, 2014 [Click to register today!]

Thursday, November 6 is an indoor session held at the American Mountaineering Center from 6:00-9:00p. Participants will learn exactly what gear is necessary in order to climb outdoors with your child and how to build simple climbing anchors from a variety of materials. We will also spend some time at our indoor climbing wall teaching parents/adults to belay.

Saturday, November 8 will be held at the Golden Cliffs climbing area in Golden, CO from 11:00a-5:00p. We will practice building safe anchors, keeping yourself safe on a cliff edge while building anchors and belaying each other in a safe and supportive learning environment.
