Features

Get yourself out of tricky situations when help isn't around.

  • Self-rescue procedures for teams of two (the most common climbing party size)
  • Shows techniques equally effective on rock, snow, and ice
  • Utilizes gear you should already carry in their rack
  • Includes 40 one-page rescue scenarios and solutions for analysis

If you climb for long enough, finding yourself in a jam far from help is inevitable. Your rope becomes stuck, or is too short. A crucial piece of gear is missing. You've wandered off route into dicey terrain. An injury leaves you or your partner in need of help. In Climbing: Self Rescue, two longtime climbing instructors and guides will teach you how to improvise your own solutions, calling for outside help only when necessary.

Because few climbers carry fancy (and expensive) search and rescue gear, all skills taught in this book use the items typically found on a climbing rack: rope, carabiners, slings, and cord. Text, illustrations, and photos explain knots, belaying and hauling systems, rappelling, ascension, passing knots, how to safely assist and rig an injured climber, and more. Roughly half of the book is devoted to real-life climbing scenarios and solutions ranging from moderate to severe. Because real-life situations rarely unfold as they do in practice, Climbing Self-Rescue teaches how to analyze and improvise your way out of a crisis.
