Whether you're just getting into hiking, or you're a seven-summit veteran, this reference book celebrating its 50th year in print will be dusted off again and again.

Study all the outdoor fundamentals you could ever hope to acquire in this heavily detailed and neatly illustrated manual. Learn how to lead a high alpine pitch, understand mountain geology, gain new tips on navigation or arrest a fall while tying yourself off with the correct knot.

First published in 1960 and now written by a team of more than 40 expert climbers, this 7th edition reflects the changes in equipment and technique across all climbing disciplines for today's enthusiasts.

Worthy of a flick through before any trip, this is the definitive guide for any mountain lover. No climber's bookshelf is complete without it.
