Creating new routes on crags is an activity that requires a great deal of expertise. Once the route has been cleaned and cleared of unstable boulders liable to break loose and injure climbers, the opener must find the best locations to place the anchor points. He has the choice of setting up the route by descending along a fixed rope fixed at the top of the cliff (a technique generally used on school cliffs), or setting up the route starting from the bottom of the cliff and making all the movements on the route to position the belay points in the best places.

The climbers who follow will then benefit from a line of plates where it will be easier to pass the carabiner, as well as comfortable belays equipped with double anchor points and linking chains. These facilities will offer climbers a more pleasant and safer experience when climbing the route.

Belay points and belays

Once the cleaning and scouting stages have been completed, the route climber prepares to drill holes in the wall with a hole punch or bumper and hammer. He will then insert expansion plugs into these holes to secure the plates along the route. This process can be long and demanding, but is carried out with passion for the climber's enjoyment.

It's important to stress that this climbing equipment is specifically designed for route fitters and should be used with care. Fixed" anchors must be positioned appropriately, scrupulously respecting the manufacturer's recommendations to ensure climber safety.

Artificial anchors

If your climbing gym consists solely of boulders, there's no need for pads or belays, as climbing is done without ropes or belay systems. However, as soon as you use a rope for belaying, there will at least be double belays at the top of the routes. When a climbing wall has only belays, this means that the climbing is done using the moulinette method, i.e. belayed from the top. However, some walls also offer lead climbing, in which case a line of spits will be present, usually aligned in a straight line. In some cases, the plates are already equipped with quickdraws to facilitate climbing. Route openers are responsible for regularly checking anchor points and tightening bolts or nuts to ensure climbers' safety.


The belays are securely fitted with two inverted karabiners to prevent any risk of the rope coming off. They are connected to the plates by a chain, making them highly reliable. No additional quick links are required, as everything is already in place. However, if you wish, you can also decide to make your own belays, which is understandable when you're equipping multi-pitch climbing routes and need to manage a budget. In this case, you'll need to buy two plates, three quick links and a chain strong enough to create a belay. Of course, a thorough knowledge of how to set up a belay on a cliff is essential to ensure safe climbing.
