Glacier Travel

A good practice when traveling on glaciers is to use a second locking carabineer attached to your harness to connect to the ice axe leash and prussic. Leaving the first locking carbineer solely dedicated to the climbing rope. Traditionally the prussic, leash and climbing rope are all attached to the same carabineer. This system is dangerous because in crevasse rescue situations, the climber must open the carbineer to remove the prussic line, thus exposing the climbing rope. Using a second carbineer means you can access the prussic cord without ever exposing the climbing rope.
