Shortcut is a series of techniques that cover rope use to protect and give confidence to party members on the field. The techniques used depend on the difficulty of the terrain and the party's competence and experience.
Techniques include extending the areas used in the Alpine environment, and climbers provide a compromise between sliding the route (safe but slow) (fast but potentially dangerous). Short roping also has the advantage of dividing the route into smaller sections, better communication, less tugging, and less risk of rope embossing debris.
Short roping involves shortening the rope by wrapping coils around the body and then pulling them off with a 2 to 20 m rope linking the leader to the rest of the party. The degree of rope discharge depends on the terrain and the techniques used. In the extraordinary, but not serious, terrain, only 1m-2m rope is required, while in other extreme hard, durable sections, up to 20m ropes are required for climbing, along with the belays and the driver's protection.
Short roping can be used both in ascending and in descent, and is usually located on a terrain subjected to and where the consequences of slippage are serious and possible. Most often it is used where the path prevents the party from feeling that the short technical stages or the oddly hard stairs – the party continued along the way – on the rope and defense techniques on the terrain's relative difficulties.
Short roping requires continuous re-evaluation and requires good situational awareness and is able to quickly and safely change the techniques. It is enough skill and ability to judge what technique to use and when it comes to practice. It's just about matching the team's abilities to the particular route section and selecting the right rope technology
Take the chest coils on lighter terrain with a 10 to 15 meter rope between you, Clean Handwheels to Between the members of the party 2-3m rope free. You do not have too many ropes in your hand – a good guide is that if you can not close your hand around the roll, there are too many ropes. The most successful mountaineer usually advances forward and the team moves at a speed that blocks the rope from the ground but does not restrict movement. It is essential that the system does not loosen and the manual coils are locked to prevent slip from causing a severe fall.
More Serious and Heavy Terrain where Defense or Both Hands Are Required to Progress But where all members of the team still feel confident that failure is unlikely, they must use another system. This includes lowering and simultaneous climbing of the coils, running ribbons in the rock, and bondage around natural pins and blocks to protect the members of the team. We recommend having at least three protective elements at least at the same time on the rope, and when the seconds remove the guard, the driver places another. Again, every climber has to move at the same speed and avoid loosing the system.
On heavier sections where the failure is absolutely possible, you have to return from the road to the lighter terrain. There may be a need to extend the rope, but try to avoid climbing more than 20-25 meters by climbing – treating the sections with minimal climbs using the appropriate tubes. Again, we try to maintain track lengths and use natural anchor points such as spikes and blocks – this facilitates communication, the rope is likely to run better and the bands can be quickly and efficiently performed.
All of these techniques Each mountaineer must do Judgments must be exercised in motion and safe learning environments before being used in genuine mountains.
Cable rolls for drift
The coils can be set in many ways – soft lock or hard lock and high or low
Soft locked coil is easier / faster to adjust length, but it is a serious risk of rolls being rolled under load – this is best inconvenient , But it is also known to hinder breathing. It is therefore always recommended to use coils that are hard to use.
If the rope of the glaciers is to use high rolls (sternum), this large anchor will help keep you straight when it falls into a swirl but Encryption position Low rolls are best because they are easier to hold and the anchor point Descending to his waist.
