Summary Whether you're a beginner bouldering a low-angled face or an experienced climber flashing a route on-sight, Rock Climbing will help you explore one of the world's fastest growing activities safely and successfully. Rock Climbing covers the basic techniques in four styles of free rock climbing: bouldering, top-roping, traditional leading, and sport leading. The book contains 47 full-color photos that demonstrate correct techniques for moving over rock faces, cracks, and overhangs. The book also provides photos and descriptions of the world's best rock climbing destinations. Like all the books in the Outdoor Pursuits Series, Rock Climbing emphasizes safety, environmental responsibility, and - most of all - the fun of outdoor activity!
