Anchors in wood studs

I'm building an outdoor climbing wall about 15' high against a wall of my house. It will be framed with studs and seismic structural connectors like a structural framed building wall with 2x6 studs and exterior plywood surface. I'm not having trouble finding plans for wood walls and recommendations for what to use for top anchors but a taboo topic seems to be how to attach the anchors in wood. Is there any solid way to install hanger anchors (for example a Fixe or Metolius stainless steel top anchor hanger, sized for a single 3/8" bolt) in a wood stud? From my construction experience, I'm thinking a 4" lag screw into the stud. Or is there another approach?
