Detailed Product Description
Human Kinetics, 2010, 1st edition. 275 pp, many color and b/w photos. Tall paperback. Fine.

Mountaineering covers planning, coordination, and conditioning for mountaineering. It’s based on the experiences of editors Carlton Cooke, Dave Bunting, and John O’Hara and the 2006 British Army West Ridge Expedition, which was chronicled on TV in Britain. Sport and exercise scientists at Leeds Metropolitan University contribute to the text.
 
Whether you’re an experienced mountaineer, a hardened climber, or about to embark on your first expedition, nothing is more critical than anticipating, understanding, and preparing for the adversities and accomplishments that await you and your team.

In Mountaineering: Training and Preparation, Carlton Cooke, Dave Bunting, and John O’Hara, along with the members of the British Army Everest West Ridge Expedition team and sport and exercise scientists from Leeds Metropolitan University, share their insights, experiences, and expertise on these aspects of mountaineering:

Selecting the right team for each expedition
Physical conditioning and training programs to ensure success
Nutritional strategies for your training and expeditions
Team safety, climbing precautions, and first aid
Preparing for and surviving in extreme conditions

From the technical aspects of a climb to the leadership and teamwork skills so essential to success, this comprehensive guide covers all of the essentials for a safe and successful expedition.

Mountaineering: Training and Preparation is must-read for every mountaineer. Read it before your next expedition.
