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...."
  • If you do anything with ropes -- from arborist to caver to rigging circus tents -- this is the go-to book. My intent was to buy it as a reference, but ended up reading it cover-to-cover over the holidays, because I just couldn't put it down.

    My only regret is that I couldn't find an electronic version -- would be great to have this on my phone and with me 24/7.

  • I haven't finished this book yet, but it's been awesome so far. Lots of great information about rope. knots. webbing, etc... which is what I wanted.

  • It has a lot of good information, BUT the illustrations are very amateurish and child like, when I pay almost $40.00 dollars for an illustrated book I want good illustrations! In my estimation the book is only worth about at the most $20.00 dollars. Try and find a used copy!

  • i was reluctant to buy this book due to the cost and that it never seems to go on sale. all i can tell you there was i was nuts to not think it would be worth it. there is so much information crammed in here. it is very well written. there are awesome pictures and diagrams on how to rig. the author tells you want tackle or hardware to use where. there is absolutely no substitute for a good teacher in the climbing world. but this book is a great standby to remind you. if you took the time to read my review, thank you, and you should have already bought this book.

  • This is a seminal roping work and a must have for the roping professional. There are more positives about this work than negatives. My recommendation is this should be read by some one who already knows the difference between useful and extraneous information. You need to be able to make up your own mind and / or visualize modifications for your specific requirements. If that's you - buy it.

  • I would not have been able to start my career as a climbing arborist if it were not for this book. This book is a great introduction to ropes and their use for climbing. It is mainly for rock climbers, but a tree climber can learn a great deal from it. After reading it I found The Tree Climber's Companion. The two, together, will serve you quite well.

  • I bought this book to learn vertical caving and teach Venture Crew members. The local Grotto helped. We hoped to learn Prusiking (3 knot rope ascending), but the details in the second edition aren't as good as the 1st edition. The Grotto guy sent me some photo copies of the first edition that clarified stuff in the second addition.

    I now own both additions. This is a must have if you do vertical caving or want to do vertical caving. The window washing info, and circus rigging is cool but I don't think we will rig a trapeze any time soon... Talk around, perhaps the 1st addition is for you!

  • Of interest to anyone thinking of going caving or planning any activity requiring rope techniques. Easy to understand, it was recommended by a friend in a local speleological group.
