The Future of Fixed Anchors
posted: May 19, 2016
On April 1st and 2nd the Access Fund and Petzl teamed up to conduct the Future of Fixed Anchors II conference to Las Vegas.
The conference brought together a broad cross-section of climbing advocates, outdoor industry professionals, and climbers who are actively developing climbs and maintaining anchors at America’s crags. The conference addressed the concern of aging climbing bolts and outlined a vision for the future of sustainable fixed anchor maintenance and replacement in the United States. The conference included a combination of formal presentations, panel discussions, hands-on demonstrations and social gatherings.
