Can't emphasize enough the need to make sure that if you're going to use this rope for glacier travel, that your ascenders - and your team's (they'll have to pull you out of the hole if you can't climb out by yourself) - are rated for a rope this diameter. It would be really, really bad to fall into a crevasse only to find that your ascenders won't grip the rope. Ditto on use of prussik loops - make sure that your prussik cord is sufficiently small in diameter that your prussiks will actually grip this small diameter rope. Finally, think twice before using this rope by itself for glacier travel. It's narrow enough, and dynamic enough, that you'll fall a long, long, long way into a crevasse before it'll stop your fall, and the further you fall into a crevasse, the lower the probability that you'll survive the fall.
