Richey Ice Hammock

Time in episode: 29:00

The big problem when climbing a big, technical mountain face is: how are you going to spend the night? Portaledges don't work for alpine faces because you aren't hauling and they are too heavy. The Richey Ice Hammock is a simple, large piece of nylon that can be anchored against a face of a mountain. As the climber chops a ledge, the ice hammock catches the ice debris and quickly creates a ledge. This method requires only half the amount of ice to create an equal sized ledge.
