Climbing Self-Rescue: Improvising Solutions for Serious Situations by Molly Loomis and Andy TysonClimbing self-rescue procedures for teams of two - the most common climbing party sizeTechniques equally effective on rock, snow, and iceUtilizes gear climbers already carry in their rackIncludes 40 one-page rescue scenarios and solutions for climbing accident analysisThe 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 finding yourself in a jam far from help is inevitable. In Climbing Self-Rescue, two long-time climbing instructors an guides teach 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. 256 Pages, PaperbackISBN #978-0-89886-772-5 This copy is a publishers 2nd and reduced price but in excellent condition.
