Detailed Product Description

London, 1998, 1st edition. 160 pp, color photos and illustrations. Larger softcover. Fine.

A complete overview of all forms of climbing and the skills and gear necessary to master them. Includes rock, snow, ice & alpine climbing. 

Climbing, one of the world's fastest growing sports, is a demanding discipline requiring concentration, courage, physical strength and dexterity, specific equipment and skills, and a thorough knowledge of the climbing environment. In The Climber's Handbook, respected mountaineer Garth Hattingh gives clear instruction on all forms of climbing, from sport rock climbing to scaling Alpine peaks.

The book is ideal for the beginner, as well as for the rusty or inexperienced. The sport is explained in fine detail, from equipment, techniques and skills to navigation methods and emergency procedures. Stunning pictures and clear diagrams inspire and inform in equal measure. This book is a perfect gift for the new enthusiast - it could even hook someone not yet caught.
