For example, when clipping a half rope in the middle of a crux with a small carabiner, good clipping skills are a must 2 1 Here are some tips for making life easier and climbing in peace.

Today I hope that we share the experience and technical expertise we have acquired at Petzl as widely as possible with those who participate in these activities.

Slowly and smoothly transfer the weight.

At m the light it emits is the same as that of a full moon, or 0. For technical trails, a power greater than lm is recommended. No reassuring explanation to help me accept the unacceptable.
