Climbing Self Rescue : Improvising Solutions for Serious Situations

- +

International mountain guides Tyson and Loomis teach climbers how to analyze problems such as a stuck rope or injured partner and improvise solutions to them. They describe a variety of self-rescue procedures for teams of two or more that utilize items found on a typical climbing rack (rope, carabiners, slings, cord, etc.). More than 100 b&w photographs clearly illustrate the techniques discussed. Annotation å©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
