This volume contains a collection of vintage articles on the subject of mountaineering and the use of climbing rope. Written in simple, plain language and profusely illustrated, this volume is highly recommended for anyone with an interest in mountaineering, and will be of considerable utility to beginners. “The Principles of Rock Climbing” has been carefully selected for a modern readership, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on mountaineering.
