This is a very skill intensive workshop that teaches climbing techniques and safety systems necessary to travel safely on a glacier. The instructors will cover knots, harnesses, crampon use, self-arrest positions, placing protection and building anchors.
The students will form rope teams and practice traveling and route finding skills. They will also learn fixed line ascension techniques at a crevasse or suitable cliff face.
This is a great beginner workshop!
