A tale of climbers and their gear.
Climbing gear is the unsung hero of modern mountaineering fables. Climbers read about the epic ascents of today without giving too much thought on the gear that allowed professionals to even consider attempting said feats. Petzl's book From the Deep: The Petzl Adventure commemorates the mountaineering gear used from the early days to the modern era. Filled with black-and-white and colorful photos, this historical book accounts the evolution of climbing gear from the first descender to Petzl's innovative GriGri.
