Alpine Skills: Summer is a collection of the essential skills one must acquire in order to become a hiking, climbing or mountaineering volunteer leader. Its four modules focus on summer activities: Basic Knowledge, Alpine Hiking, Climbing and Alpinism. Its goal is to present proven techniques that should be learned and mastered through proper technical training as provided by an instructor.

The Petzl Foundation's leadership role in developing safe climbing is familiar to many in the climbing world, especially the Petzl "stickman", safely demonstrating good mountaineering practices in diagrams. The handbook’s startlingly clear diagrams hardly need written explanation for those versed in mountaineering practice; however, the addition of concise descriptions greatly expands the know-­how to those less initiated.
