So I splurged at

I love books, basically any and all, but lately I have been building a library of climbing and mountaineering related books. I have been trying to avoid digital versions, because well, libraries rock. Obviously everything cannot be learned solely from a book, but adding in books and other literature to courses, guided trips, and self practice is certainly a good way to become a well rounded climber. So I splurged, I already had a book on Winter and Snow techniques from the same crew, and really liked it. I can strongly recommend it as a comprehensive handbook for technique and skills, with really good illustrations and clear instruction. So I got the rest.

About adventuresunplugged

The world is a really cool place. I moved to Zurich almost three years ago to start my PhD, and have really enjoyed the different opportunites living close to the Swiss alps offered. This blog is about some of my adventures, climbing, mountaineering, rock climbing, traveling... life in general! Wow, haven't updated this bad boy in some time! While the above is still true I have gone on to finish the PhD, so that is Dr Unplugged to you. I also have landed a job in Switzerland and will be shortly moving to Geneva. Clearly I have some adventures ahead left to explore with you guys along for company!
