Author(s): Dave Searle
Video Release Date: July 5, 2023

In this video we take a look at nearly every system that is accepted to use to shorten the rope for alpine climbing or mountaineering. It’s a super in-depth video so make yourself a cuppa and get stuck in. There are almost certainly other systems out there for shortening the rope, but these are the most common. I talk through the pros and cons and my go to systems.
