  9. Rope for Glacier Travel

    What do people think is the minimum thickness of rope they would use exclusively for glacier travel?
  10. ablation zone

    Thats why I said its USUALLY easy to spot crevasses in the ablation zone, I did not say it always is. These are just guidelines and there are always exceptions in everything.
  11. ablation zone

    The ablation zone is the area of the glacier below the firn line that has more snow melt per year then snow that falls on it, therefore resulting in lots of bare ice and rock. It is usually easy to spot crevasses in the ablation zone due to most of the snow being melted opposed to the accumulation zone which is above the firn line and can be totally covered in snow.

  13. Glacier Travel Gear
