On My Shelf

I have an entire shelf of books dedicated to climbing and skiing instruction.  And I still reference them from time to time.  Before I crack open Freedom of the Hills or the AMGA Technical Manual, I'll try to find the answer in one of these first:

Ice and Mix Climbing: Modern Technique, by Will Gadd

Alpine Climbing: Techniques to Take You Higher
, by Mark Houston and Kathy Cosley.

Climbing Self Rescue: Improvising Solutions for Serious Situations, by Andy Tyson and Molly Loomis.

Backcountry Skiing: Skills for Ski Touring and Ski Mountaineering, by Martin Volken, Scott Schell, and Margaret Wheeler.

Extreme Alpinism: Climbing Light, Fast, and High, and Kiss or Kill: Confessions of a Serial, by Mark Twight.

Self-Rescue, by David Fasulo.
