Mountain Skills

A non fiction book by

In the past few years, hillwalking and climbing have become amongst the most popular outdoor pursuits but even for the experts, these can be dangerous activities. No-one knows this more than Barry Davies who served almost two decades with the Mountain Troop of the elite Special Air Service. Drawing on this extensive experience, this compact and portable manual instructs you in all the key skills necessary to enjoy in safety this beautiful but often hazardous environment.

Adapted from the selection training and survival techniques taught to members of the SAS. every aspect of being out on the hills is covered, ranging from the all-important preparation and choice of equipment to basic navigation and climbing skills. Detailed advice is also given on camping out, winter walking and on what to do to maximise your chances of survival if you are the target for search-and-rescue.
