Hey kennoyce, That's definitely something nice to learn early on... especially when you get up on the rock. Were you able to stumble upon any helpful resources to learn about anchor cleaning?
No, just eventually saw some other climbers doing it and figured it out.
Just for a little background, when I started climbing we would lead the route to the anchors, then lower off our draws, then hike around to the top of the cliff, find a tree to rap off of, and clean the draws on rappel from the tree. After doing this several times we saw some other climbers clean the anchors and it totally blew our minds!
