Why all participants of the mountain climbing tour are always roped?

Perhaps someone can explain that. Because I always think when I see those photos when a slip of the climbers, it'll break even with all the depth. Or?

This is called a rope team. While climbing a rope team on such fixed points, ie attachment of the rope secured to the rock also. In glacier crossings around the roped goes without assurance of a fixed point and is on the one hand, of course, as a community safety for a single crashing, the other as a group exposed to the risk of crashing together when the group is not one or more falls from a height can hold. Still walking in the rope team is more secure than alone.
