Item Description...
This is a rock climbing instructional book. Climbing anchors allow climbers to safely defy gravity. Solid anchors and proper rope techniques can prevent a fall from turning into a catastrophe, while bad anchors are an accident waiting to happen, says certified guide Craig Luebben, who invented his own type of climbing protection, the Big Bro. Since then, he has taught rock climbing to hundreds of clients and has conducted self-rescue clinics across the United States. He distills more than twenty-five years of experience into Rock Climbing Anchors. This 2007 entry in the Mountaineers Outdoor Expert Series, for intermediate-to-advanced climbers, presents modern anchoring ideas and techniques for top-roping, rappelling, sport climbing, traditional rock climbing, and mountaineering-all in one comprehensive guide. Luebben covers the finer points of all types of commonly used anchors: removable anchors including hexes, wired nuts, tri-cams, expanding wedges, expandable tubes, and cams; natural anchors such as trees and boulders; and fixed anchors like bolts and pitons. Photos show a variety of gear placements, accompanied by discussion of the pros and cons of each.

More About Craig Luebben

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Craig Luebben was an AMGA Rock Guide Instructor and served on the Board of Directors for six years. He was the author or co-author of nine books on climbing and wrote numerous gear reviews and travel articles for Climbing and Rock & Ice magazines. He had a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Colorado State University and had done graduate work in rocket science. An off-width aficionado, Craig invented the expandable tube chock known as a Big Bro (see page TK), which is still sold by Trango. On August 9th, 2009, at the age of 49, Craig was killed while leading a pitch on Mount Torment in North Cascades National Park when a car-sized block of ice broke off sending him on a 30-foot fall. Craig is survived by his wife Silvia and his daughter, who was 6 at the time--both of whom he loved deeply. Clyde Soles is a freelance writer and photographer with four decades of climbing experience. He is former Senior Editor of Rock & Ice magazine and the founder of Trail Runner magazine. Clyde has authored or co-authored nine outdoor how-to books, including two other knots books.

Craig Luebben currently resides in Boulder, in the state of Colorado.

Best book on anchors  May 12, 2008
I've been working my way into lead climbing and this is my favorite book on climbing anchors. After taking many classes and climbing with "old schoolers", the book really solidified what I had already learned and taught me many new modern techniques and "tricks". I also appreciate that the book presents the science behinds all the various anchor setups. Although there are hundreds of B&W photos, on occasion they are hard to decipher when showing complex setups. Climbing Anchors (second edition) by Long and Gaines is also an excellent book and covers the same material. Having read both has helped me tremendously!
Rock Climbing Anchors is SOLID  Nov 15, 2007
Luebben's experience, knowledge and research shine through in this informative, accurate book on rock climbing anchors. I found the book to be useful for beginner and expert alike. This work is a full step beyond any other literature that is out there regarding building and analyzing rock climbing anchors.
Comprehensive and current!  Jun 9, 2007
Very current and well organized book! Craig Luebben has obviously absorbed the new anchoring concepts that have cropped up recently and has helped me understand the advantages and disadvantages to each new method. A better book in my opinion than John Long's new anchor book. Nicely illustrated and un-biased, this is the book I am recommending to my immediate/advanced clients. -Dave Lottmann, EMS Climbing Guide
THE Anchor Building Book!  May 14, 2007
I've read all the anchor building books and so far, I have found this one to be the best one. Easy to understand, backed up by testing, lots of pictures (a picture speaks a thousand words!), a well-written guide!

I highly recommend this to all climbers out there!

Great  May 12, 2007
Craig breaks anchors down into clear concepts, some of which John Long made blurry. The only thing I would have liked were color pictures...simply because some of the anchors were hard to see in B and W.
