Skills for saving your bacon on glacier based adventures

   Watch Promo

Heading out on a glacier soon? Want to learn the quickest way to pull your partner out of the crevasse, and get yourself out of a crevasse, quickly and with a minimal amount of gear? Look no further. I have drawn on years of expedition experience, my training through the American Mountain Guide Association, and other guides who are also experts in this field to create this progressive online course.

This video does not replace in-person instruction, but it does cost less, and is extremely convenient. Climbing is dangerous! Climb at your own risk. In-person instruction will help you refine these skills and techniques prior to using them in a real mountain situation.
