Has anyone ever climbed down to the bottom of a large crevasse and explored the inside of a glacier?

I value life.

>>2285000
This is incredibly stupid.
>>
>>2285004
why?
>>
>>2285005
I would assume that these are constantly caving in and shifting and all sorts of awful shit.
>>
>>2285018
Sure, but those dangers could probably be mitigated by relatively quick trips (maybe no more than a day or two at a time), and also doing it at a time a year where temperatures never rise above freezing.

>>2285000
Why are you asking /out/ instead of google? https://youtube.com/watch?v=Gbfu2-Z_iDI
>>
>>2285000
Yeah my dad and uncle, on two separate occasions. Dad broke his heel, fell in a 7 hours coma and had to get out and hike for 4hours to get help.

If this isn't bait you are clinically retarded, anon. You can not know WHEN these shits collapse or move. It does not matter how long you are in there, all it needs is bad luck.

I've been in crevasses when doing rescue and self rescue training. You don't want to hang out down there.

Maybe you're thinking of ice flow and ice cave exploration like you can do in Iceland?

We have VR R/C drones now that literally anyone can buy for little money.
The worst thing that could happen is that you lose the drone to a crash/loss of connection.
>>
>>2285192
Of course you can't, I didn't say you could. I said you could go in conditions when it is less likely to happen.

Yes, but none of us here have.

No, that's where the ice goblins live

>spend up to three weeks inside the glacier
how many times do you think she's been fucked in the ice cave?
>>
>>2285031
This won't help you either.

>>2285310
This won't help you. Dropping into a crevasse is stupid. Ice climbing is shady. Everyone that i know that's done it has slipped, fell out/off, had their hold break, etc. Climbing an already shit and unstable material, down into a pocket, and then depending on that same material to climb back out, is fucking retarded. I've climbed in the snow, I've climbed loose shale shit, I've climbed in the rain. I will never climb ice, fuck that shit.

alpine ice is a pretty solid medium, its not like waterfall ice

Sure it does. The less time you're in there, the smaller the risk. Try to think.
>>
>>2288272
maybe actually try ice climbing you faggot
>>
>>2288997
A basement dweller telling someone else to try ice climbing... only on /out/.

you don't need to go into a crevasse. lots of glaciers have ice caves and they are pretty cool inside. I went in one that had a creek in it but it is pretty spooky to know the whole thing could fall in on you at any given time. overall, a bad idea that can get you killed.

Antarcticanon here

Yeah, have abbed into lots of crevasses, both for training in rescue techniques and to explore them. They are really cool.

Crevasses are not as scary and unstable as posters here seem to think. Obviously there is a risk of roof collapse, but the main damage a crevasse does is when you fall into it.
