The Riggers Apprentice

Author(s): Brion Toss


Brion Toss is considered the world's leading authority on rope splicing and knot tying. But this is much more than a knot or splicing book - the Rigger's Apprentice is the 'bible' for rope lovers, two books in one, combining the Rigger's Apprenticeand the original Rigger's Locker. There is a strong nautical flavor to this book but tree climbers will find some real gems in here - everything you ever wanted to know about ropes, splicing, knots, block and tackle, mechanical advantage, whipping… and much more. A 'must-have' book for every tree climbers library.
