Traditional Lead Climbing is the first and only guidebook intended to teach rock climbers how to lead with gear. Unlike other types of climbing such as sport and direct-aid climbing, “trad” climbing relies on placing your own gear as you climb from the ground. It’s also one of the more dangerous climbing activities, where expert guidance is a must. This invaluable guide gives step-by-step descriptions of equipment, rope management, and techniques. Dozens of close-up photos and fun yet informative drawings show situations climbers might encounter and how to deal with them. In addition to covering the basics, the book showcases the experience and wisdom of a number of world-class climbers in self-revealing sidebars.

Rock climbing is a spiritual experience. Spending time in nature is spending time in God's cathedrals. The ones he has made with his own hands. This book started as an outline for a five day rock climbing course and spiritual workshop. Each morning would start out with a rock climbing lesson. The group would then spend the day climbing and practicing the skills from that day's lesson. In the afternoon, there would be a time of life application and discussion. Then the book took on a life of its own. What started as a few spiritual lessons learned through interacting with God's creation became a parable for our life's journey through five stages of spiritual maturity. Along the way, it presents a roadmap to a deeper and more genuine Christian faith. This new version includes a 7-part bible study discussion guide - Seven Spiritual Principles of Rock Climbing.

In this comprehensive guide, experienced climber and coach John White shows how to climb indoors and introduces the reader to a range of exercises and techniques that will not only improve their indoor climbing but also help them to climb more safely and effectively outside. Climbing on artificial walls has been growing in popularity since the idea was first developed nearly 40 years ago and there are now indoor climbing walls and specialised indoor centres in most major UK cities as well as the means for keen climbers to construct their own walls in their gardens or garages at home. Climbing using artificial walls is a safe and controlled way for beginners to learn the techniques they need to know for climbing outdoors. It is also a means for experienced outdoor climbers to train effectively when they are not near to suitable outdoor sites or conditions are dangerous.

Canadian rock climbing was born on the big flat face of Yamnuska. For more than 50 years aspiring youth and grizzled veterans have been putting up new routes on the south-facing slab that faces the sun and attracts climbers every month of the year. In the first-ever climbing guide to the Yam, you will find 115 routes described in detail and accompanied by maps and photographs. Yamnuska holds a special place in the hearts of people who seek adventure. Climbs range in grade from 5.5 through 5.12, and styles encompass the very bold to the more conservative. The cliff is steeped in history. There is a spiritual nature that is hard to explain, but many climbers have shared this feeling after a day scaling her lofty heights. Partnerships develop between friends and the mountain that can last a lifetime.

This is the first and only definitive book about the free-climbing history of North America, written by "Master of Rock" Pat Ament. While other books have covered some of the material, there has never been as clear a chronology or as thorough, accurate, and well-researched a treatment. Ament leaves the critique and analysis to others and lets these remarkable events speak for themselves in a succinct, refreshing, and imitable style. The book includes interviews and commentary by many world-class climbers, including Royal Robbins, John Gill, Pete Cleveland, Henry Barber, John Bachar, Lynn Hill, John Long, Steve Roper, Jimmy Dunn, Dean potter, and Alan Watts. Photographs from prominent climbing photographers, such as Tom Frost, illustrate the prose and bring to life the personalities of many of these legendary climbers. Numerous climbing areas are covered, from the Adirondacks in upstate New York, to Arizona, the Pacific Northwest, Devils Lake in Wisconsin, and The Needles in South Dakota. This readable "encyclopedia" includes interviews, anecdotes, stories, and colorful quotes, along with funny and imaginiative writing. This is the book for newcomers to the sport as well as long-time aficionados. It will appeal to both die-hard climbers and to those who prefer adventuring in an armchair. A marvelous sense of suspense and adventure radiates from virtually every page.
