Highly detailed examination of nuts, cams, bolts, slings and other climbing gear and how to use it all (with an American slant, ie anchor = belay or running belay in UK parlance).
 
Learn how to place and configure solid secure anchors in a variety of real world climbing situations and see the pros and cons of many options. Natural anchors, passive chocks, mechanical chocks, fixed gear, knots, belay anchors, top rope anchors, and rappel anchors are all discussed in detail. And, for the first time, the crucial dynamics of equalization and fall forces are thoroughly investigated, including an analysis of rigging systems. Tests conducted specifically for this book detail the true performance parameters of the cordelette, sliding X, and equalette, as opposed to the “traditional wisdom” that guided choices in the past—and was often wrong.
 
This third edition combines the old "Climbing Anchors" and "More Climbing Anchors" and has been completely updated and is accompanied by all new colour photos. Climbing Anchors provides all the essential knowledge needed for climbers to create safe, simple and efficient rock climbing anchoring systems.
