Show Description

Since 1948, the American Alpine Club has documented the year's most significant and teachable climbing accidents, providing invaluable lessons to climbers. Each accident is carefully analyzed so climbers can learn to avoid similar situations. In the second annual "Know the Ropes" section, professional mountain guides describe common problems that occur when lowering a climber from an anchor, a situation that all too frequently leads to injuries and fatalities, and offers in-depth instruction and illustrations to help prevent such avoidable lowering accidents.
