Welcome to our next evolution of the Tech Tip Video series: The Mountain Skills Series. For the first time since starting this series of educational videos for recreational climbers over a decade ago, we are focusing on non-glaciated alpine terrain. Skills include when and how to use Kiwi Coils, Hip Belays, Terrain Belays, Munter Hitches, Snow Belays and more. These videos could not be possible without the support of our long-standing partner, the GORE-TEX brand.
