Show Description

This classic mountaineering text is considered the bible for climbers and mountaineers. The first edition was published in 1960, and since MEC first began we've had this book in the assortment. It includes sections about equipment, knot tying, specific climbing techniques, glacier and mountain travel, and expedition planning. Major updates include a significant new chapter on conditioning, plus detailed revisions to the information provided about rescue and first-response, aid climbing, and waterfall and ice climbing. The content is reviewed and updated by a team of experts, both climbers and climbing educators.
