Crevasse Rescue

11.08. - 13.08.2023

In this compact mountaineering course the focus is on crevasse rescue training. How to build up a solid belaying point in the snow or ice? How does the loose pulley work which enables me to get a companion out of a crevasse in case of an emergency? This is what we practice on the three-day weekend course an the Braunschweiger hut.
