Detailed Product Description

London, Faber and Faber, 1947, revised 2nd edition, 2nd printing. 87 pp, b/w photos and illustrations. Soiled grey cloth hardcover with no dust jacket. Very Good. 

This book by an experienced climber is a complete, up-to-date, and practical guide to Rock Climbing in the British Isles. The considerable development of interest during the last decade in Rock Climbing and Mountaineering in this country has brought a tremendous influx of new blood into the mountaineering world and the provision of cheap accommodation in climbing centers by such organizations as the Youth Hostels Association has enabled the younger and less monied men and women to take up climbing. 

Rock Climbing and Mountaineering caters for those who are taking up climbing for the first time and who have not got a great deal of money to spend. It is factual and explains in detail all that the potential climber and mountaineer wishes to know. Chapters are devoted to each section such as equipment, climbing technique, climbing grounds, etc. Details about equipment include notes on books, different kinds of nailing, ropes, clothing, rucksacks and ice axes. Another chapter gives a very full description of the use of the rope, the various kinds of knots used, the technique of its use between the leader, the middleman and the last man, and a comprehensive survey of belays. The chapter on technique is a clear and factual description of the various kinds of hand and footholds and the different variety of pitches likely to be encountered. Slab work, chimney climbing, cracks, laybacks, aretes, all are described and clearly illustrated.
