Art of Ice Climbing
A stunning coffee table book on all things ice climbing.
The Art of Ice Climbing covers the full range of history, techniques, ropework, ice types and a wealth of subject matter beyond. Laid out beautifully it really is the most comprehensive and readable book on the most fluid of climbing styles.
Whether it's disbelief at tubular picks and rime snow paddles or attentive study of the fracture points of ice columns, it really will have you captivated, perhaps humming under your breath, "the cold never bothered me anyway". The only downside is that for the price it's a surprise that it's not a hardback book but as a well bound and comprehensive paperback it's a beautiful talking point.
