Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How do you move efficiently on ice? What are the tricks of the top climbers on mixed routes and precarious hanging icicles? What are the most important considerations when buying ice climbing equipment? How strong is ice protection? What are the greatest hazards in ice climbing, and how do you avoid them? This thorough text answers these questions, and hundreds more about alpine ice, waterfall ice, and mixed climbing. Laced with anecdotes, this easy-to-read text is the most comprehensive resource on modern ice climbing, providing essential information for beginners and experts alike. Craig Luebben has been ice climbing for 20 years. He has authored two previous FalconGuides, including Advanced Rock Climbing (co-authored with John Long), which won the Mountain Exposition category at the 1997 Banff Mountain Book Festival. He works as a contributing editor for Climbing magazine, and lives in Golden, Colorado.

Book News Annotation:

A guide for both beginners and experts. Luebben, contributing editor to Climbing magazine, starts with basics such as equipment, safety, and water ice technique, then moves on to cover mixed climbing, alpine climbing, leading, and descending. Includes sidebars and additional material by other experts, plus an overview of popular North American climbing areas, hair-raising b&w photos, and a glossary. No index.
