Climbing: ?A Few Keypoints for an all day Multi-Pitch Climb
Location: Lopburi, Thailand
The Climb ? Waltz of a lovely Wife (206m, 5c+)
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.
