For those who have used an ice axe or wanted to learn all about ice climbing should definitely read this book.
Much more than an instruction manual, this book offers an in-depth description of the practice of ice climbing, from alpine to dry tooling. It contains valuable information on climbing techniques, equipment, history and even the scientific data of ice.
All ice climbers should pay particular attention to the "check & go" section, an initiative of our authors that offers a risk reduction technique and involves an analysis of different ice structures.
Illustrated with numerous testimonials and photos of international mountaineers who today have become references in the climbing world, "The Art of Ice Climbing" is a must for all-level ice climbers as well as for guides, instructors and Mountaineering Clubs.
