Climbing expeditions can have a major impact on the environment, particularly on highly traveled peaks. Gentle Expeditions demonstrates how to plan and execute a low-impact expedition. The book covers such topics as selecting an environmentally conscious leader; packing light; choosing gear; dealing with human waste; and deciding whether to use supplemental oxygen. Other considerations for a gentle expedition include being respectful of local people and establishing and maintaining low-impact base and high camps.
