This book provides advice on equipment, hazards and techniques along with background information in the Alpine geology and history of conyon exploration. It is primarily aimed at experienced parties who are comfortable in the mountain environment, with good rope skills and a good degree of physical fitness. Illustrated with beautiful photography newcomers to the sport may find inspiration but would be advised to hire guides with local knoweldge
