    Recent NSS webinar on simple webbing anchors for sport and rescue rigging. (1 hour)

    The discussion includes testing data for a range of webbing anchors, and their properties so that riggers can select the most appropriate for their conditions. The discussion includes a literature review of past anchor testing and results. Static System Safety Factors (SSSF) included.

    Caving does not equal Canyoneering. And similarly; Canyoneering does not equal Caving. This is a canyon forum. Not a caving forum.

    This is why we have Kuenn with us. He is our Caver-canyoneer and knows when appropriate caving techniques apply :) I would think this webinar would be very valuable for many canyoneers. Thanks for posting Kuenn!

    What exactly is your point? Are you saying caving and canyoneering anchors are so different nothing can be learned from this free webinar?

    Point taken.

    The webinar discusses static anchor philosophy for sport and rescue rigging. Exclusively dealing with webbing anchors and safety factors. I've not reached the level of anchor building in my canyoneering career to speak intelligently about marginal anchor construction, but I believe it is safe to say, outside of that discipline, static anchors comprise the vast majority of all other anchor types in canyoneering. Given a BFR, tree, chockstone, bolt and I'm confident you'll find a static anchor 90% of the time.

    Rapter, if you have the time and the desire, watch the webinar first and then feel free to fire away.

    Rapter,

    We welcome you to the forum, but with somebody with so few postings, do you think you should be policing the forum so soon?

    As Kuenn and all cavers know, caving is canyoneering undeground, or as some say, with a roof overhead.:)

    I disagree. I think that we have much to learn from the cavers. The way they do things is very beneficial to canyoneers. I don't know why you feel so adimately about segregating, but I for one enjoy learning techniques from Rock Climbers, Cavers, and Arborists. Many of the skills common to those activities, have been introduced in this forum, and I think the forum is better for it! :)
