Victorious summit photos atop a hard-won ski mountaineering objective nearly always fail to capture the nuanced steps of progression which led to that moment. Crevasses, steep snow fields, and icy ridges all had to be navigated to reach that summit, and without reliable and capable tools like the Mammut Glacier Cord Dry 6.0, travel through that terrain can be harrowing (at best). With a Dyneema core, a dry coating, and an incredibly lightweight construction, the Glacier Cord won't freeze up or weigh you down, and will last for years to come. A compact storage sack doubles as a throw bag for precise rope tossing, and allows for compact rope storage inside your pack. Glacier travel, rappelling, or crevasse rescue-- it doesn't matter, the Mammut Glacier Cord Dry 6.0 is the dream tool for those hard fought alpine objectives.
- Aramid sheath and Mammut Dry coating combine to give this rope an extra grippy texture, meant to improve handling and ease of use.
- Mammut Dry treatment eliminates water absorption, keeping this rope maneuverable and safe in even the harshest of conditions.
- This cord is static, and elongates less than 2% when weighted, making it perfect for crevasse rescue.
- Storage sack keeps your pack neat and doubles as a throw bag for precise rope tossing.
- Bright yellow coloring makes the Glacier Cord visible in snow and dim pack interiors.
- Compatible with TIBLOC and MICRO TRAXION.
- CE EN 564 certified. Not for lead climbing.

Questions & Reviews
Don't see a way to do any crevasse rescue work without some prussiks and belay devices!
Thanks for reaching out! A good way to learn crevasse rescue is to hire a certified guide. They'll be able to do a deep dive into what is the industry standard for crevasse rescue.
Since the Nano 8 is no longer available, I suggest trying the Alpine ATC, run it back through your HMS biner as other poster suggested and then to auto block back up. Auto block is essential. In my application, I can barely hold myself stopped with my hands on the brake line and no autoblock. https://www.vdiffclimbing.com/prusik-types/
