November 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Instructor: Rich Carlson

The biggest guy in your group weighs 260 pounds. So as long as you have an anchor that will hold at least 260 pounds, you are good to go. Right? Well, it’s not quite that simple. There are other factors that can increase or decrease the load we put on our anchors. In this workshop we will discuss how impact force, vector angles, mechanical advantage and friction can all come into play. PLUS, tips and tricks from Rich’s four decades of canyoneering experience for how to make these factors work in our favor.

LOGIN: The link for this online class will be posted automatically 15 minutes before the scheduled start. You can log in via web browser or the Zoom app. Please note, the times are US Mountain Standard Time.

FORMAT: Rich will present fundamental principles in a 15-20 minute monologue, followed by questions from participants with Rich’s replies.

QUESTIONS IN ADVANCE: If you already know some questions that you want to ask that are related to this topic, please post them in the comment section below. You must be logged in to post.
