The first edition of Ice & Mixed Climbing was groundbreaking: a comprehensive instruction guide to ice and mixed climbing written by one of the sport’s premier practitioners, Will Gadd. Like its predecessor this fully revised and updated second edition features detailed instruction on technique--from the swing of the ice tool to the placement of the feet to combining actions for the greatest efficiency. New sections on climbing glacial ice and expanded discussion of dry-tool placement encourage ice and mixed climbers to get out year round, while a thoroughly revised chapter on training options help them get in top condition. Gadd has been climbing since, in his words, "dinosaurs wore crampons to Sunday school," and in this new edition he shares what you need to know to have fun while climbing ice and mixed routes.
