Covering all the basic technical skills needed, it is invaluable not only for beginners but also for those who already climb but would like to increase their technical knowledge on both single- and multi-pitch routes.
Written by one of the UK's top mountain instructors, the book covers subjects including equipment, knots, belaying, leading, seconding and abseiling. Many other peripheral skills are also covered, and the whole book is highly illustrated with full-colour photographs throughout. Special 'Tips' and 'Notes' boxes highlight important techniques and observations, and the book is presented in such a way as to make learning to climb as easy and enjoyable as possible.
Ideal for beginners and as a refresher on good technique and safety.
