I needed a book that would become the standard resource for teaching glacier travel in my club's winter . I'm an instructor for the High Altitude Mountaineering School of the Colorado Mountain Club, and this book is our bible.

I needed a book that would become the standard resource for teaching glacier travel in my club's winter mountaineering schools. The techniques here are brilliantly illustrated and explained! However, the book failed to meet my main expectation due to personal disagreement with some (a very minor but crucial part) of the techniques presented.
