Nano for glacier travel

Nano for glacier travel

The Sterling Nano in use as a glacier rope in Antarctica. We had five people on a 30m rope which was a bit tight, but it worked OK for the terrain we were in.

Unlike climbing where you are mainly relying on the rope in case you fall, with rappelling, you are relying 100% on your gear, so it is very important to learn how to do it correctly. A beginning rock climbing course would be a good place to learn how to do this, or a day with a guide.
