No matter how experienced a climber you are, one day, you will find yourself in a precarious situation. It could be a stuck rope, a dropped rappel device, ropes that won't reach the next rappel, an injured leader, or any number of problematic situations. 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.
