It's not the fall that kills you, it's the landing. This book by veteran climbers Long and Gaines reviews how to set good anchors and avoid the plunge. (I don't suggest this book to teach the art of anchor building---for that you need some rock time with an experienced climber---but it's a great review before that first trad' climb of the season.)

With over fifty anchors photographed, explained, and diagnosed, this book serves as a compilation of about every anchor system you might think about bu

Didn't REALLY read this cover to cover -- more of a long term reference book.
This is an excellent anchor review. Truly excyclopedic!
