comment How to walk as a roped party on a glacier?
@Vorac They should, but that requires that everyone notices immediately and physics is quite merciless here. Now imagine that the last one in the row stumbles and nobody sees that until they get hit by the tightening rope. At that point the fallen one might be stopped as he transfers his momentum to the other members which then are kicked off their feet and start to slide. Compare pp. 26 and sequential of the presentation linked in my answer.

comment How to prepare for a long rocky alpine route, which is unusual for me?
What's the typical ratio between climbing and scrambling in the routes you have in mind? Is it basically climbing with some easier sections every now and then or is it scrambling, that has some occasional climbing sections?
