In this video series on UKClimbing, we have teamed up with Arc'teryx and mountain guide Peter Mason, to cover a range of basic Alpine and Mountaineering skills.

We will be covering topics such as what to wear, what goes in your backpack, to basic crevasse rescues. We hope you find this series useful for learning basics and polishing up on essentials, but they don't replace proper instruction and years of experience!

In this video, Peter Mason explains the rope work and necessary precautions for walking on glaciers.
