Climbing filmmaker, Paul Diffley, takes an amusing look back over 100 years of climbing and mountaineering instructional books. His research has unearthed top tips on subjects including how best arrange your 'clinkers', how much wine to drink in the Alps, and how to use a telescope to fix a broken arm. This funny and slightly irreverent presentation will provide an insight to how our 'sport', techniques, equipment and sub-culture has evolved.
