Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The editors of magazine share their extensive knowledge on the increasingly complex array of available equipment for climbers and mountaineers. Rather than providing reviews of specific items available, it explains the pros and cons of various differences in design and construction of each type of item. Well illustrated (with black and white photographs and technical drawings) sections cover clothing and camping equipment as well as the gear necessary for going up, whether it be up a sheer wall or a 3000m peak.
