(Almost) Everything you need to know...,
By A Customer
This review is from: Mountaincraft and Leadership (Paperback)
I say "almost" because it can't possibly contain everything you would ever need to know!
This book sets forth, in an easy to understand manner, the basics you will need to know to go out in the hills, either on your own, or leading a group. It is however, NOT a substitute for experience.
It also includes very little on ropework, which some may consider to be part of mountaineering.
I also own the earlier edition of this book, the new one, as well as its funky pink cover has a couple of new chapters, other than that it is virtually identical to the older one, down to the illustrations.
