from the web site: Editors Neil Messenger, Will Patterson, and Dave Brook offer the only reference that brings together all scientific disciplines related to the study of climbing and mountaineering in one easy-to-use CD-ROM. It features the proceedings from the First International Conference on Science and Technology in Climbing and Mountaineering, held at the University of Leeds, England, in April of 1999. The text highlights three key topics within this range of disciplines. The physiological dimensions of climbing are examined in chapters that report how the human body reacts to the rigors of climbing. Also covered are the techniques and biomechanics of climbing and the equipment, from ropes and helmets to textiles and clothing, required to make climbing safer and more comfortable.
