This year has been unique for everyone. All have been impacted by the virus in some way. We sincerely hope that you are doing well and that the pandemic has not touched you or your family personally. Meanwhile, on behalf of its members, CTPA continues to work to fulfill its educational mission. We know that the workshops we are offering are an incomplete substitute for the Summer Meeting. We firmly believe it is only right to provide these workshops free of charge as a way of thanking you for all your loyalty and support over the years. Of course, we will miss seeing everyone this summer gathered as in the past, at a lively and productive Summer Meeting. We look forward to when we will be able to see everyone again.

“Forces at an Anchor When Climbing and Rigging.” – Brian Kane, PhD. – University of Massachusetts – Amherst
Have you ever wondered how much force is at the anchor point when you climb or rig? Does it matter whether you climb on
a stationary or moving rope? Or whether you use a canopy or basal anchor? Or if you use a block or friction rings? In this
