      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Top rope anchor lesson near portland?

Recommended Posts

As my subject and post count may suggest, I'm new to the sport and new to the area.


It seems most lessons focus either on technique or lead climbing, but I just want to be able to set up a good anchor for top roping. Books are great but I don't want to die because I misread something, and I'd like the comfort of having someone check my setup.

Good on ya for wanting to be taught in person, and not just figure it out from books or the web.


I think most any place where you can get a lesson on lead climbing could also tailor a lesson for you towards top-rope anchors (with the exception of the mazamas - they may not be so flexible). Some local businesses can take you out for a guided trip with the focus being on learning TR anchors. I know a few individuals in town who do that sort of thing - I can PM you with names/companies if you'd like.


Alternatively, post up here in the partners forum and offer to pay local climbers in beer and belays to take you out under their wing for an afternoon of top-roping.
