Techniques for Efficiency

With backcountry ice climbing here in the San Juans and around Colorado already in full swing, we thought it would be a good time to highlight this video – Belays & Transitions for Multi-Pitch Ice – offering a few tips and tricks for increasing your speed and efficiency on multi-pitch ice routes.

Specifically, SJMG Guide Eitan Green discusses and demonstrates good use of the cordelette when equalizing ice screw anchors, and then proper use and orientation of  your auto-locking belay device when belaying your follower.

Watch the video below to find out more and stay tuned to the SJMG Blog for more helpful tips and info throughout the season!
