Detailed Product Description

New York, Oxford, 1973, 1st edition. 161 pp, 120 b/w photographs and drawings. Black cloth hardcover with nice dust jacket. Jacket has a very small amount of age yellowing. Fine condition.

Long considered the classic European text on the training, experience and equipment needed to conquer safely the various dangers that confront the mountaineer. A veritable encyclopedia of mountaineering knowledge, the book covers every aspect and inherent hazard; rock and rock-falls, snow-structure, cornices and avalanches, skiing and winter mountaineering on ski, glaciers, crevasses, neve, mountain weather and wind, fog and blizzards, altitude sickness, sunburn and heatstroke, intentional bivouacs and being stranded. Has a chapter on equipment, an analysis of ropes, pitons and karabiners, a detailed study of breaking strains. Fully illustrated throughout and translated by E. Noel Bowman
