The must-have handbook on rescue techniques for serious climbers



Whether you need to assist your partner past a difficult section of a climb or rappel down a multipitch route with an injured climber, you owe it to yourself and your fellow climbers to be prepared. How to Climb: Self-Rescue fully describes and illustrates a variety of techniques that every climber needs to know for safety and self-reliance.



The first edition of this book was the authority on rescue techniques for rock climbers. Now completely updated and revised with the latest techniques—and accompanied by Mike Clelland’s clear, detailed illustrations—David Fasulo’s How to Climb: Self-Rescue remains the definitive resource on the topic.
