The AAC Triangle Chapter organizes climbing education clinics and informal social events.
Rappelling Best Practices

Two Bolt Anchors: The QUad
Hands-on discussion and practice of solid anchor setup. The Quad anchor and other common two-bolt anchor setups are covered. This clinic is for climbers that want to set up a top rope anchor outside.
Two Bolt Anchors: Cleaning And Lowering
Hands-on discussion and practice of how to remove gear (clean) and lower from the anchors after a climb. This clinic is for those who want to learn best practices for cleaning bolted top anchors outside.
Knots for Climbers
Hands-on small group discussion and practice about knots and hitches frequently used for climbing. Whether you’re a novice or an expert, you’ll find topics suitable for your skill level.
What clinics do you want to see offered? Let us know what you think here.
Join us on the first Monday of each month for a round, share your latest adventure, poll the group with a question, plan your next outdoor trip, or just hang out. All are welcome!
