Event Description: There will be a Top Roping Anchor class being held at Great Falls. It will start at 10am and run until 3pm. Sticking around after 3pm and doing more climbing is highly likely. We will be meeting at climbers sign in board at the front of the parking lot to the imediate right of the payment booth.

Topics Covered

1) Equipment needed for a Top-Roping Anchor
2) Proper inspection of equipment
3) Selecting Appropriate Anchor Points
4) Basic knots used in tieing Anchor Points
5) Weight balancing an anchor system
6) Basic Saftey Techniques used in Top Roping
7) Discussion of Top Versus Bottom Belays
8) Possible Rappel instruction.

The schedule will be to set up two anchors, climb for a bit, take down both anchors, then setup both anchors at a different location.

The fee for this class is $35 based on a class of five. If we get more than five people the price will be lowered. Payment can be made to instructor at beginning of class. This class will NOT be run unless a minimum of five people are attending.


Climbing is a high risk sport. Everyone climbs at their own risk. I waiver will need to be signed. The instructor will provide literature references to techniques shown. This is an informal instruction where the fee is mostly based on equipment costs. All equipment will be inspected by group.

Each person is REQUIRED !!!!! to have a proper fitting HARNESS. SHOES and a HELMET are highly recommended. The instructor is not responsible for someone smacking their head when climbing.

Please feel free to contact Instructor for any further questions.
