Tyrolean Traverses and Ascending

Not taught as a specific part of the climbing progression, we teach the Tyrolean to Venture scouts with a climbing background for things like river crossings on non-rock outings. It is useful to have scouts do one or two Tyroleans prior to the in-sequence work on Rescue/self rescue.


Similarly, ascending may be taught as part of caving technique or glacier travel before it is reached in Rescue/Self Rescue.
