Climbing anchor

Sam preparing to use a primed climbing anchor and rope

A climbing anchor is one of several pieces of equipment utilized by Sam to traverse the world. It is a long metal rod, which when driven firmly into the ground, can be used to attach a rope to. Once primed, Sam can use a climbing anchor and rope to ascend and descend steep slopes and cliffs. The maximum length of rope that can be attached to a climbing anchor is 30 meters.


A pin that can be driven into the ground to create an anchor point for a strand, enabling the scaling of steep surfaces and safe descents from elevated positions to a length of up to 30 m.

Use L2 to ready your anchor, and R2 to place it. Once placed, your rope will be available for other porters to use.
