This fourth booklet is dedicated to ice climbing. We address technical aspects of the activity such as equipment choice, ice screw placement, progression, building a belay or making a V-thread. What sets this activity apart is its environment: ice. Apart from technique, ice climbing requires significant experience to better understand ice quality and formation; this topic is not covered in this booklet.
This third booklet presents techniques for progression on via ferrata with lanyards. Often seen as an easily accessible activity, via ferrata remains a risky activity that requires training, as with any other vertical endeavor.
This guide focuses on planning and preparing for a ski-mountaineering or backcountry touring and includes tech tips on ice axe use, how to rappel, providing assistance to your partner(s), and glacier travel.
From the Deep: the Petzl Adventure, a story about a company and its environment.
Though rarely in the spotlight, climbing equipment represents more than a simple accessory for mountaineers. The evolution of such carefully designed gear bears witness to the resourcefulness that climbers use to overcome increasingly challenging terrain, and also embodies their ethical choices. The tools that climbers use clearly reflect their approach to the mountain environment.
For forty years, Petzl and its founders have played a major role in the history of mountain exploration. With the golden age of caving as the starting point of its legacy - in which Fernand Petzl played a pioneering role - the manufacturer has explored the different realms of the vertical world: rock, ice, snow, nighttime... The company has also successfully applied its expertise to rescue and work at height.
To read about the Petzl adventure is to follow women and men committed to the vertical world and to the very heart of exploration. In constant interaction with an ever-evolving world, they create new means of progression.
