Waterproof, pocket-sized quick reference for performing a crevasse rescue - Step-by-step instructions for crevasse rescue in a convenient, portable package - Durable enough to fit in your pack and survive extreme weather - Valuable tips and reminders for safe travel on glaciers in a user-friendly formatCrevasse rescue is one of the most technically complex skills a mountaineer will ever need to learn; it is also one of the most essential. While climbers can go for years without needing to set up a Z-pulley system, they need to be ready for that one crucial moment when it is essential. The Crevasse Rescue Pocket Guide allows glacier climbing parties to have a rugged, packable resource to reference in the field. Climbers can pull it out on their way to the climb, at a pre-glacier break on the route, or for a few minutes at night in the tent-it's a convenient, step-by-step refresher to look at on trips where this knowledge may be needed.Similar to Mountaineers Books' successful Avalanche Pocket Guide, the new Crevasse Rescue Pocket Guide is a full-color,16-panel laminated and folded card for in-the-field reference. Alpine climbers will keep the guide in their crevasse rescue kit when traveling on glaciers. Not a substitute for training and practice, it's a handy, lightweight reminder and reference tool that helps rope mates and rescuers implement the techniques efficiently and correctly in a highly stressful situation.
