By American Mountain Guides Association | August 12th, 2016

As part of its mission to teach the correct fundamentals of climbing, the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) has produced this series of instructional videos. The videos cover a range of necessary climbing techniques from belaying, to rappelling and anchoring.

Here, AMGA/IFMGA Mountain Guide Margaret Wheeler demonstrates how to remove and replace old webbing, a.k.a. “tat”, at climbing anchors.
