Sport climbing has become a phenomenally popular pastime, and every day countless numbers of people enjoy the ascent of bolt-protected routes.

This book is designed for climbers starting out on their sport-climbing careers, as well as for those experienced at clipping bolts on routes at venues across the globe. It covers all the technical skills needed to climb bolted sport routes worldwide, from short single-pitch entry-grade routes, through harder modern test-pieces to classic multi-pitch crag and mountain routes.
