The world of climbing self-rescue is ever-changing, but the constant is that techniques need to be something that climbers can use in the real world with the gear they already have with them. Elite climber Ian Nicholson has written Climbing Self-Rescue with this in mind, offering technical systems that follow patterns that are easy to remember and that can be applied to solve a wide range of problems. This lavishly illustrated guide teaches the skills a climbing team needs to execute a successful technical rescue on its own.

Written for climbers with experience on multipitch routes, Climbing Self-Rescue addresses key skills including escaping the belay, lowering a climber, dealing with a stuck rope, improvising ascenders and using aid-climbing techniques in rescues, rescuing an injured leader, and so much more!
