"Even if nothing ever goes wrong, it pays for weekend warriors, guides, and outdoor educators alike to be fluent in wilderness-first-responder skills. The thorough, must-have Vertical Aid gets you there by covering medical emergencies, environmental illnesses (altitude sickness, hypothermia, etc.), and rescue scenarios. Its authors, themselves all medical professionals and climbers, bring their deep field knowledge to life on the page."
“By far the most updated medical information related to mountain travel.”
