Until now, instructional books for climbers have taken a largely 'negative' approach, concentrating on how to reduce the inherent risks of the sport, and mentioning only in passing the equally important skills required to get to the top. This book represents a watershed in the genre, coming from a coaching perspective, Sport Climbing+ is packed with inspirational photos, humorous illustrations, and two lifetime's worth of learning how to succeed at the toughest of all sports.
The book takes a practical approach, focusing on the improvements that climbers can make immediately, without embarking on lengthy training programs. Written in a highly accessible, jargon-free style, Sport Climbing+ is sure to be useful to all climbers wishing to get involved with sport climbing; from complete beginners making their first trip outside after leaving the wall, to experienced athletes just trying to find that extra bit of help required for their latest 8a redpoint.
This book is the first in a series of instructional guides from Rockfax. It has been written by, and strongly features high profile, professional climbers: the last such book was the hugely successful 'Fawcett on rock' published twenty years ago. The book is presented in the rich, informative, colourful style that has made Rockfax the 'gold standard' for guidebooks.
Book Format - The book is in the standard A5, soft-cover format with full-colour throughout. It features many action photos to illustrate the various techniques, plus cartoons and informative text spread over 192 pages.
