Crevasse Rescue & How to use a Rope: Chamonix Guide des Alpes

 

            RESCUING IN CREVASSES: ROPES AND SECURITY

Maneuvering a glacier requires full concentration and preparation for possible falls into crevasses.

Thanks to suitable material and a heightened anticipation of danger, the mountaineer can counteract a fall or provide help to his trapped hiking companion.

We offer special days which focus on teaching you these kinds of techniques, which we hope you will put into practice as little as possible.
