Sinopsis:



* Will Gadd is an ESPN X Games and Ice World Cup winner

* Color photos throughout illustrate the climbing techniques

* Part of The Mountaineers Outdoor Expert series
"Mixed climbing is my favorite discipline. It's the most fun because it has the fewest rules -- sort of like professional wrestling compared to boxing." So says Will Gadd, as profiled in the book Fifty Favorite Climbs. Here the champion ice climber presents the same techniques and veteran wisdom he imparts to those who attend his annual clinics. These include step-by-step instructions for the swing (ice axe), the kick (footwork), and putting it all together (tracking); how to "read" ice to select your line and follow it safely; and drytool techniques for mixed climbing. Training exercises and inspirational stories complete this seminal guide.
Will Gadd won every major ice competition in the world in 1998 and 1999, as well as the 2000 Ice World Cup. A resident of Canmore, Alberta, he has written for Climbing and Rock & Ice, among other publications.

About the Author:

WILL GADD won "every major ice competition in the world in '98 and '99 (ESPN X Games, Courchevel Invitational)" as well as the 2000 Ice World Cup. He writes for the major climbing magazines and is frequently featured on panels at the Banff Mountain Book and Film Festival. He says he started climbing with his parents before he could walk. Thirty years later, he still spends at least 100 days a year tied into a rope. Over the last several years he has put up new ice and mixed climbs, taught climbing clinics and developed a mania for paragliding. For more on/by Will, see willgadd.com.
