The ultimate skills and instructional handbook,
By A Customer
This review is from: The International Handbook of Technical Mountaineering (Hardcover)
Having just seen an advance copy, this A-Z book is superb. It presents technical climbing and mountaineering skills in an easy to read and up to date manner, and covers everything from bolted climbing to crevasse rescue and basic ropework. It also includes sections on international grades and a variety of improvised rescue techniques, plus loads more. The photographs and diagrams are excellent and very clear. Whether climbing at home or abroad, this is an essential book for all climbers and mountaineers of whatever level. The plastic cover also makes it ideal for taking out onto the crag to use as a reference whilst practising techniques.
