Mountain Skills

Originally uploaded by penwise.
Some of the mountain skills you practice are rapelling, rock climbing, river crossing, rope management, and survival skills. The knot tying techniques are no joke. You have to be able to correctly tie about 15 knots all blind folded and within 30 seconds. Needless to say, many students fail because they cannot pass the tests. Rapelling at night with too much gear down an unknown face is one of the simple joys in life everyone should experience...just kidding.
