Rock Climbing provides basic information on belaying, leading and rappelling techniques and offers advice on useful equipment and respect for the environment. Like every climber you will come to the point where you want to leave the climbing gym and exchange plastic handles for real rock beneath your palms. You want to breathe in fresh air, enjoy the sun, wind, and the scenery surrounding you. But in order to do that safely, you first have to train for it. When rock climbing, unlike indoor climbing, you are responsible for protecting yourself. While this promises excitement and a more intense experience, it also requires additional knowledge and both physical and mental strength. This book will cover the right techniques, crucial safety procedures, and essential equipment that allows you to successfully master the first steps in rock climbing. Numerous photos illustrate the challenging and complex sequences and movements in an easy-to-understand way. A brief introduction to indoor climbing is also included.

Sport climbers often project a route that tests their physical limits in hopes of an eventual completion, regardless of the number of attempts. Succeeding requires a solid understanding of belaying and other climbing techniques that are used in various climbing disciplines, but are detailed here specifically for sport climbing. Targeting varying abilities, Sport Climbing teaches climbers how to rehearse moves and train for routes, how to get through the pump, how to fight until the endof a pitch, how to stay composed when tired, and how to best use their bodies to climb efficiently and expertly. Whether inspiring new climbers to learn the nuances of scaling vertical terrain, or delving into a deeper, more conceptual understanding of how to go about projecting a route, Andrew Bisharat brings confidence and a level of practicality to the sport. He demonstrates how skills specific to redpointing transfer over to traditional climbing, making this a must-have book for any climber.Featuring tips from famous climbers such as Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold, the author brings a modern voice to a fun and exciting sport.

This handy little guide is packed with tips and techniques for anybody who’s been climbing for a short while and wants to improve their technique. Clearly the best place to practise climbing skills is on a climbing wall or (harnessed securely) on a rock face, but we hope these ideas will give you some tips on what kit to invest in, help you improve your technique next time you climb and simply inspire you to go for it. We can’t promise that reading these ideas will see you climbing ropeless up mountains in the style of Tom Cruise in MI2 (we certainly wouldn’t recommend it) but we do hope you find them entertaining, inspiring and informative. Happy scrambling!

CLICK HERE to download the chapter "The Alpine Environment" from Alpine Climbing * For climbers who know the basics and are ready to venture at higher altitudes * Written by longtime guides and climbing instructors certified by the American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA) * Recommended by the AMGA * Teaches situational thinking and learning as well as technique This intermediate-level guide addresses tools, skills, and techniques used in alpine terrain including rock, snow, ice, and glaciers at moderate altitude -- approximately 5000 meters (16,000 feet) and lower. The technical protection systems are covered, of course. But 30 years of alpine climbing experience has convinced the authors that mastery -- and safety -- lie in the far more difficult task of knowing exactly which techniques to use, where and when. Therefore, they teach step-by-step decision-making skills, providing scenarios, checklists, and self-posed questions to inform the decision process. Alpine Climbing assumes some prior knowledge, primarily in rock climbing skills and techniques. Basic knots, belaying, rappelling, building rock anchors, leading, placing rock protection, and movement skills on rock: variations of these skills that are of particular value in the alpine environment are addressed in this book.

THE SPORT OF ROCK CLIMBING was once a luxury enjoyed by the rich and wealthy youth who were adventurous. However, by the 1990s this interesting and exhilarating sport became a hobby for even the Average Person. ROCK CLIMBERS need to be perfectly fit, physically, using the muscles in their arms and legs to pull themselves up the challenging rock formations, and mentally, controlling their hands and feet accurately, getting proper grips to get to the top. ROCK CLIMBING is quite dangerous. In fact, it is one of the most dangerous adventure sports. Not only did Rock Climbing gain increasing popularity throughout the world, but with it came a lot of variations as well. The two main branches would be TRADITIONAL ROCK CLIMBING and SPORT CLIMBING. There are tons of other variations as well. Most ROCK CLIMBERS practice the sport for personal satisfaction, taken as a challenge, just to see that they can overcome it.
