I always enjoy reading this collection of accident reports from around the US and Canada. Some reports are rather dry or lack sufficient detail. But there are always lessons to be learned from the misfortunes of others. If you are climber or an arm-chair climber, you will enjoy these reports. Read full review

As always, a great quick read to remind climbers of the small mistakes that can lead to disaster. This volume includes the famous Todd Skinner rappell accident. Several of the accounts and analysis were written by accident survivors. Read full review
