Two days class to learn how to move in security on a glacier.
First part of Glacier Progression will be dedicated to the use of crampons and ice axe to gain more confidence with those tools. We’ll learn in this same phase, how to handle snow and ice slopes using different progression techniques. In the second part we’ll deal with roped parties. How to tie, how to proceed in a roped party and how to “read”the glacier to follow the best possible itinerary.
