Following in the footsteps of Chouinard's Climbing Ice, this super book of all things icy presents ice climbing from the early alpine ascents to the modern practice of dry tooling, and recounts on the history, the equipment, and the techniques involved.

Part instruction manual and part coffee table volume, it will be useful to beginners and experts alike as it details the subject from the basics to an advanced level.

It covers the major topics of History, Ice, Equipment, Climbing Techniques, Safety, all broken down into small sub sections, some, such as those on sharpening axes, crampons and ice screws) going into considerable detail. Interspersed with this are short articles from such luminaries as Lüdger Simond, Mark Twight, Ueli Steck and Tim Emmett.
