In the decade since its original publication, On Rope has gained worldwide recognition as the most authoritative book on single rope techniques (SRT). Like its predecessor, this new edition is a practical approach to North American vertical ropework. It contains 384 pages with over 700 detailed drawings. Home workshops are included to show you how to assemble your own ascending and descending gear. Techniques and Equipment, plus Training On Rope covers everything you need to know about the techniques and equipment needed for vertical work--including ropes, knots, rigging, harnesses, rappelling, ascending, and belaying. It also contains a detailed program for training and practicing ropework skills. The book is equally valuable for both beginning and experienced users of vertical rope techniques.
