Part III: The Climb ? Be confident in building an equalized anchor

Continuing on from the last post, lets cover the final point about this Multipitch Blog.

Although this isn?t necessarily related to multipitch climbing, be ready to build your own anchor if you aren?t familiar with the route. (onsighting the climb)

Meiqi led the 6th and final pitch and couldn?t locate the last bolted anchor.? No problem, she had plenty of slings and at the top there were plenty of strong small trees and rock formations to build an anchor from. She built an anchor when she saw the climb was no longer vertical and was becoming a bit of a rock scramble to the top. She belayed me with no issues and (as I passed the bolted anchors that were clear as day to me) I made it safely to her position and were only meters to the top.? Her anchor was bomber and she felt confident belaying me from it.? Be confident building an anchor.

We started our climb at 8:30am and reached the summit at 2:30pm.? We didn?t push ourselves but we were mindful of the time as we knew the way we climbed up would not be the way we would descend.? The proper descent route would be on a very exposed rock face making for smooth rappels. Or so I had hoped.

It was an amazing day, a beautiful climb and an amazing view from the top.

Break Time

This is by no means a detailed list on multi-pitch climbing.? A full course in multi-pitch climbing should attended to learn the basics and an overview of the fundamentals from a qualified instructor.

Join us on one of our courses to get the skills to confidently do outdoor rock climbing, whether you prefer sport, trad, multi-pitch or all of the above.

About Author

have been doing outdoor activities solo since my early adulthood. Usually when I get involved in a hobby or sport, I don?t let go until I achieve a high level and understanding of the sport. I got my scuba instructors in 2001. In 2006 I took up Kite surfing and am one level away from instructor on kite surfing. I have been doing trips into the wild, the off the beaten path trips for most of my life. I learned to repel and climb at a young age and have always enjoyed camping and backpacking. Over the 6+ years, I have gotten really involved in alpine style mountaineering. With certifications in mountaineering, and instructor certifications in lead climbing, and repelling (abseiling), I enjoy sharing or knowledge and teaching to those who have a passion for outdoors. Now I am working on completing the outdoor wilderness leadership program. People have always heard of my trips, and spoke with envy that they wanted to try such things but didn?t know how. This has inspired me to move to open this company. The Wildfire Expedition Company or ?Wildfire Expeditions?
