Merchandise Description

When your team is in trouble on the mountain - How to analyze and improvise your way out of a crisis

  • Self-rescue procedures for teams of two or more
  • Techniques equally effective on rock, snow, and ice
  • Utilizes gear you already carry on your rack- no specialized rescue equipment needed
  • Step-by-step techniques illustrated with more than 100 photos
  • Includes 29 rescue scenarios and solutions

The rope is stuck-or too short.  A crucial piece of gear is MIA.  You've wandered off route into dicey terrain.  An injury leaves you or your partner in need of help.  Climb long enough, and at one point or another, finding yourself in a jam high off the ground is inevitable.  In Climbing Self-Rescue, two longtime climbing instructors and guides teach how to improvise you own solutions, calling for outside help only when necessary.  A rope and the equipment you already carry on your rack- carabiners, slings, and cord - are all you'll need.
