Mountaineering Methodology is a textbook intended for beginners and advanced climbers who wish to devote themselves to mountaineering in its various forms, whether rock climbing, artificial climbing walls, ascents in the mountains up rock, snow, and ice, or protected routes (klettersteig, via ferrata).The fifth part of textbook Mountaineering Methodology is available. The fifth section, Snow and Ice, focuses on a specific matter: this chapter is intended for those interested parties who wish to focus among other things on climbing in ice, as well as those who wish to progress further, both to climbs in high altitude mountains where snow lies in the terrain year round, or in mountains during the winter season. Advancing and climbing in snow, ice, and mixed terrain are the key focuses of this section. Here we discuss in detail how to build protection and belay stations in snow and ice, how to advance in mountain terrain in snow, climbing movements when climbing on ice with ice axes, braking with ice axes when falling down a snowy slope, and other activities typical of climbing in wintry mountains.
