If you’re heading into the ACC’s 2023 General Mountaineering Camp in the Chess Group this summer, you can get a copy of the Alpine Skills – Summer handbook at the unbeatable price of $30 (regular $45).


Here’s the deal: order the book here (click the add to cart button above and choose ‘local pick up’) by the end of day on the Wednesday before your Saturday arrival at camp, and we’ll have your copy waiting for you in Golden, BC. There will be no shipping cost, and you’ll have the book to bring with you up to camp.

The book covers everything summer-mountaineering related, from knots and gear, to glacier travel and crevasse rescue, to anchor building rapelling, and everything in between. This book will be your reference on all things climbing for years to come.
