How to Rock Climb (How To Climb Series)

We rated this book:


For the adventure junkies out there, or maybe just readers who want to widen their knowledge of all things adventurous, authors John Long and Bob Gaines bring you How to Rock Climb, an instructional book on the sport of climbing rocks for fun. The book has much to offer a variety of readers. If you enjoy climbing rocks and overcoming obstacles along the way, you’ll learn much; if you don’t find it enticing, the high-def pictures on nearly every page will pull you into the beauty of nature and knowledge.

The authors touch on any and every detail pertaining to rock climbing, including the general equipment: ropes, knots, carabiners, as well as proper techniques to know or try, such as the face, rock, sport, and trad climbing, belaying, rappelling and ascending, and risk management while you’re at the mercy of the rocks. The instructions given throughout each chapter are precise and exact but should not be taken as gospel truth when it comes to personal judgment and calls. The length of the book shows the complexity of the sport/leisure activity and the respect it is owed by many.
