This intermediate-level guide addresses tools, skills, and techniques used in alpine terrain including rock, snow, ice, and glaciers at moderate altitude--approximately 5000 meters and lower. The technical protection systems are covered, of course. But 30 years of alpine climbing experience has convinced the authors that mastery--and safety--lie in the far more difficult task of knowing exactly which techniques to use, where and when. Therefore, they teach step-by-step decision making skills, providing scenarios, checklists, and self-posed questions to inform the decision process. Alpine Climbing assumes some prior knowledge, primarily in rock climbing skills and techniques. Basic knots, belaying, rappelling, building rock anchors, leading, placing rock protection, and movement skills on rock: variations of these skills that are of particular value in the alpine environment are addressed in this book.
