I often get asked by ski tourers, rock climbers and hikers – “How do I learn to do easy mountaineering trips with my friends?” Well the answer is that you need some basic ropework skills for glacier travel and crevasse rescue. I usually do Glacier Travel as a two day course. In it you learn essential knots, roping up for glacier travel and a simple crevasse rescue system.
This program will prepare you to conduct simple mountaineering trips with friends with similar skills or accompany guides in more serious terrain. For experienced climbers I can introduce more advanced techniques needed for travel in small teams.
