Event Information


The clinic provides an extension to anchor techniques learned in Anchors I for building top rope anchors, much of which is neccessary for climbing at Devil's Lake. Topics covered in this clinic include the use of traditional rock climbing protection in top-rope anchors and more advanced rigging systems. We will begin our clinic at the CCC parking lot at 9 am and finish around 4 pm. You can expect to be back in Madison around 5:30 pm.
