Following in the footsteps of Yvon Chouinard's classic Climbing Ice, this book presents ice climbing from the early alpine ascents to the practice of dry tooling, covering the history, the equipment and the techniques. In addition to illustrating ice climbing's past, it details a new method of reducing the risk inherent in the sport, the 'check and go', which includes an analysis of the different ice structures.

As well as being a valuable manual, answering the questions of beginners and experts alike, The Art of Ice Climbing is also an inspirational read and suitable for everyone from instructors to clubs and groups. The book includes testimonials and pictures of international climbers who have defined this winter sport.
