Description

This completely revised and updated edition of Craig Luebben’s bestseller covers the ten essential climbing knots all climbers need to know, then presents sixteen others for special situations. All new color photos make learning these knots a cinch. Knots include the Munter hitch, the auto block, the clove hitch, and the equalizing figure eight. Also included are photos of the knots being used in the field and an overview of essential climbing equipment.
