Record #199277:

Halb, ganz oder gar nicht: welches Seil das richtige für Gletschertouren ist? / Markus Müller.

Title: Halb, ganz oder gar nicht: welches Seil das richtige für Gletschertouren ist? / Markus Müller.
Translated title: Half, all or nothing: which rope is right for glacier travel?.
Author(s): Müller, Markus.
Date: 2011.
Language: German.
In: Alpen : Zeitschrift des Schweizer Alpen-Clubs. (2011.), Vol. 3 (2011)
Abstract: Discusses options for winter glacier travel with EN 892 standard ropes: single, half (for double rope technique), and twinned. Illustrates usage and discusses recommendations of European manufacturers and guides. Both French main manufacturers offer 8-mm twinned rope explicitly for glacier use, with single-strand use tolerated for glacier travel. Edelrid and Mammut provide half ropes for simple glacier use. Concludes that single-strand half rope (8.3 mm or thicker) offers sufficient protection for general glacier use (unlike twin rope used similarly). Contact with rock demands double strand use. Recommends 30-50 m rope length. Stresses importance of correct usage over rope choice; always rope up when glacier snow cover is thin, soft or fresh, in crevasse zones or poor visibility, or without skis.
