Mastering the Beesnest

Good rope management skills are central to efficient rock climbing as well as ice climbing and mountaineering. This event will demonstrate some of the most important tricks for moving, organizing, and storing ropes. It will include topics such as rope stacking, using a rope "pancake", tying a butterfly coil, an open butterfly coil, and a backpack coil. We will also discuss using a "future-scope" to choose the right technique at the right time.
