Gripped - - TRAINING AND TECHNIQUE -

The Low­er­ing: Ei­ther rack your ice tools, put them over your shoul­ders or hold on to them, but if some­one is low­er­ing you, keep them out of the ice. Walk your­self down while you’re be­ing low­ered, it’s tricky with cram­pons. If you’re rap­pelling, add two cara­bin­ers on your be­lay de­vice to add fric­tion against wet and skinny ropes. Go slow at first, bash­ing your knees off ice is the worst.
