Description
This is a climbing handbook, encompassing the history of the sport, the equipment needed, acquisition of skills, rescue, winter and alpine climbing and hillwalking. It describes the principles and methods of movement on rock, snow and ice, and the correct use of equipment and forms of protection. In many cases a variety of relevant techniques are detailed to allow the reader to select the system appropiate to his individual needs. All the techniques of modern climbing are covered, from those required on road-side crags to those needed on the more ambitious ascents of major mountains and faces. The text is accompanied by photographs and drawings.
