An anchorage point or anchor point has a security function in canyoning, caving and climbing, it can consist of one or more anchor points, anchor points or security points on the rocks, in the ice, in the snow or on a climbing wall. These may consist of an artificial anchor point such as a hook or a stainless steel anchor plate ((plaque). It is also possible to take advantage of the natural presence of a protrusion or an opening in the rock. These anchor points may have the following function:

  • Securing or securing the climber during his active climbing action. A climber can secure himself via the securing point, a set, the climbing rope and his climbing harness.
  • Various securing points can be used as an intermediate stop or as an end point at which an abseiling is possible.

The following rough classification can be made:

  • Natural anchors: a rock, an hourglass, a tree
  • Artificial rock anchors: anchors that are placed in rock crevices or rock openings, in this category come the nuts and the friends. These are mainly used in traditional climbing, in some cases where the existing rock hooks are missing or cannot be trusted.
  • Pitons: hooks that are hammered in, drilled in or glued in.
  • Ice creams: hollow tubes that are twisted into the ice.
  • Snow anchors: all kinds of attachments that are buried, hammered or retracted into the snow. The most obvious snow anchor is to use the pickle.
