Alpine Caving Techniques

A Complete Guide to Safe and Efficient Caving


The long-awaited English edition of this classic manual, the definitive source for caving techniques among French speakers, is now translated and updated from the third French edition (2000). While it emphasizes vertical caving and rigging practices, it also presents new and thorough discussions on many other aspects of cave exploration, such as: equipment specifications and use, training, diet and mental well-being, travelling efficiently through the cave, on and off rope, systematic prospection methods, emergency self-and small party-rescue.
Whether you cave in the high mountains or in the equatorial jungle, as a speleotourist or a hardcore explorer, this manual provides essential information on how to optimize your efficiency and ensure your ultimate safety in the challenging environment of vertical caves.
