I may be on the entirely wrong website for this, If I am I apologize.

I've been watching some mountain/rock climbing videos lately and im perplexed by how they're able to do it without ropes/ladders.

basically my question is.. when you have a crevasse, how do you cross it without a ladder? and when you have a straight vertical wall to climb.. im assuming the first person just has to do it without a rope, if they fall that's it.

I've also read that on certain mountains like mckinley they dont use ladders at all.. how is this possible?

Again I apologize if this is the wrong forum, but I assume in both mountain and rock climbing there are crevasses to cross, thanks guys.
