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.

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.
