From dust jacket notes: "If you need to go up and down fixed ropes, this is the book you've been waiting for. On Rope is already being hailed as the bible of vertical or single rope techniques (SRT). Its 300 plus pages contain the most definitive text on rope techniques yet published, supported by over 425 detailed drawings, eight comprehensive comparison charts, three how-to workshops, and an extensive glossary??.On Rope is sponsored by the Vertical Section of the National Speleological Society - the group whose members have pioneered the development of new rope techniques for nearly 30 years. It is the creation of two active members of the Vertical Section whose wide ranging experiences include vertical cave exploration and search and rescue on a national level. On Rope covers everything you need to know from ropes, knots, and harnesses, to ascending, descending, and belaying - plus a detailed program for training and practicing ropework. On Rope is equally valuable for beginning and advanced users of vertical rope techniques??."
