Mountain Climbing

Transcript: Mountain Climbing The Pursuit Pursuit Whats Mountain Climbing ? Mountain climbing, often known as "mountaineering" or "Alpinism," is a sport that involves striving to reach mountain peaks. This activity differs from hiking or sightseeing because of the difficulty of the ascent. Climbing a mountain usually entails some rock climbing or ice climbing. According to popular belief, mountain climbing requires the use of both feet and hands, and in recent years, these have been combined with the use of specialised equipment and knowledge of expert methods. What is it ? Whats involved ? There are many things involved in mountain climbing which you must take into consideration including eating enough calories, drinking fluids, preventing hypothermia, and dressing in layers. Whats involved? The Thrill Thrill Whats the thrill of mountain climbing? Thrill Mountaineering, often known as mountain climbing, is a sport that involves reaching, or attempting to reach, high points in mountainous locations, primarily for the enjoyment of the climb. Although the word is often given indiscriminately to trekking up low mountains with only minor challenges, it is more accurately limited to climbing in areas where the terrain and weather conditions present such dangers that a certain level of prior knowledge is required for safety. Mountaineering is distinct from other outdoor sports in that the participant's action field—and nearly all of the challenges—are provided entirely by nature. What do you get out of it? What you get out of it Climbing mountains encapsulates the delights that come from putting one's fortitude, resourcefulness, strength, ability, and stamina to the test in a dangerous circumstance. Mountaineering is a group sport to an extent with each member supporting and being supported by the group's success at every level. The delights of mountaineering for most climbers are not just in the "conquest" of a peak, but also in the physical and spiritual satisfactions gained through strong personal effort and ever-increasing difficulty.

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
