Every year, novice climbers and experts are injured or killed by inadequate preparation and errors in judgment. Since 1948, the American Alpine Club has been documenting the year’s most significant and teachable climbing accidents, providing invaluable lessons to climbers.

In Accidents’ “Know the Ropes” section, professional mountain guides detail the best practices for snow climbing to avoid slips that all-too-quickly become dangerous accidents. “Know the Ropes” offers in-depth instruction and copious illustration to help prevent avoidable snow-climbing accidents.

Mountain safety expert Jed Williamson has been managing editor of Accidents in North American Mountaineering since 1975.
