Mountain Climbing

Transcript: As a sport Mountaineers may use many different forms of shelter while climbing. Mountain huts, bivouac, tents and even snow caves may be used. Mountain huts are huts that exist at many levels during the climb of some mountains. Each are typically centered on a dining room, and have dormitories. Mountaineering is a popular sport around the world. In Europe, the sport originated in the Alps and it is still very popular there. Other popular ranges include the Tatra Mountains, the Caucasus, Rila Mountains, the Rocky Mountains, and the Alaska Range to name a few. Traveling over glaciers can be dangerous because of crevasses. Crevasses can't always be seen because snow can blow over them and freeze creating thin ice bridges. Ice bridges are thin bridges of ice that can be as thin as a few inches. Mountaineers use rope to protect against this. Shelter Many cultures have superstitions about mountains. They believed they were sacred because of their proximity to heaven. Because they believed this, many people were curious of mountains. Eventually, people began to climb them. Mountaineering began to be known as a sport around 1854 because of Sir Alfred Wills who made mountain climbing fashionable. This lead to the rise of the first mountaineering club known as the Alpine Club, which was founded in 1857. Hazards Mountaineering is another term for the sport mountain climbing. Mountaineering involves exactly what you may think it does. Climbing and hiking over mountains. Technique for Glaciers Technique for Snow In History Base camp There are multiple methods used to safely traverse ice. If the terrain is steep, the lead climber can place ice screws in the ice for protection. Each climber on the team then clips past the screw, and the last climber on the team picks it up. Sometimes, slinged icicles or bollards my be used. Technique for Ice For overnight mountaineering you need to pack standard camping equipment. A backpack, tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, stove, food, and anything else you want to bring. You may be crossing glaciers and steep areas so you may be required to bring a harness, ice axe, rope, and crampons. For longer steep pitches you may need to bring ice-screws and snow pickets. You need to plan ahead and know what route you're going to take before you head out. Every mountain is different however, so gear is subject to change. Mountaineering Mountaineering Mountaineering is considered to be one of the most dangerous sports in the world. There are many hazards that you must be careful of. For example there is falling ice, falling rocks and avalanches. Not to mention weather, crevasses, solar radiation, altitude, snow slopes, and ice slopes. An interesting statistic is that 10-12 people out of 100 climbing over 6000 meters in the Himalayas die. Equipment There are base camps on many popular and dangerous mountains. A base camp is an area used for attempting to reach the summit. They are positioned to be safe from the harsher conditions above. To efficiently travel over snow and ice, crampons are frequently used. Crampons attach to the mountaineer's boots and provides traction over the snow or ice. If the snow is compacted enough, the mountaineer can travel on foot. or traveling up or down a snow slope, an ice axe is required. In this video, you can see just how dangerous these ice bridges can be. Although it looks obvious to us, in the eyes of the mountaineer, it may have looked safe. Locations
