The Art of Ice Climbing
This book presents ice climbing from the early alpine ascents to the practice of dry tooling, developing on the history, the equipment, and the techniques.
It goes beyond these aspects by offering for the first time a method of reducing the risk, the “check and go,” which includes an analysis of the different ice structures.
From a pedagogic perspective, it answers many questions of beginners as well as experts, but also instructors of this activity, clubs and communities.
The book includes testimonies and pictures of international climbers who are the reference of this field.
