Description

Crevasse 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 having 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 rescue techniques efficiently and correctly in a highly stressful situation.
