From the Back Cover: Defining the terms, words, equipment and techniques of summer and winter climbing, Ken Crocket of the internationally respected Scottish Mountaineering Club has provided at once an essential handbook for active climbers and a handy primer for armchair followers of this demanding pursuit.
Current usage is dealt with in depth but out-of-use terms are also included alongside practical notes on everything from knots (how to, where and when to use which) to alcohol (ditto).
Presented in a straightforward but helpfully cross-referenced form, the book provides a synthesis of the author's own broad experience and describes the accepted and safe practices which ensure the minimum of risk in any climbing activity.
