About this title


Photographs of ice climbers in action augment complete instructions in the techniques of ice climbing, dangers, and safety measures

From the Back Cover:

"Yvon Chouinard's Climbing Ice is not only the last word on the subject, but the first words from all American press on modern ice techniques. Climbing Ice is no beginner's manual, but rather a compendium on the sport. The book explores the history of snow and ice climbing, details techniques from the graceful and delicate French method of moving on ice to cutting steps and front-pointing on crampons. It also includes useful chapters on equipment, the formation and structure of snow and ice and avalanches.

"... Yvon Chouinard, a modern Eckenstein and the godfather of ice climbing in this country, has written the rulebook of this old yet new climbing game."

-- Outside Magazine Peter Boardman
