/ Need a book to teach me stuff (terminology, how to etc)
I'm looking to buy a book that explains all the terminology in rock climbing / bouldering (example, lead climbing, soloing, etc) plus some tips on how (for example safe belaying, climbing technique, how to use and look after gear etc). I climb at High Sports here in Plymouth and it seems if you wanna learn anything you have to get your wallet out = dangerous and expensive.
most, if not all that info can be found on this site
are both excellent - seek them out secondhand on ebay or online.
Good call. Both good books, the Libby Peters book is probably the more in-depth of the two.
That's the one i was actually lookiing for !
