"The best how to book on trad climbing to date. I only wish it was around when I started climbing."
"From the first steps in ropework to the most advanced preparation tactics for the hardest routes, Adrian and John take you on a trad climbing journey that no other text has come close to matching. Daring to span beyond the conventional, this book leaves no stone un-turned with an uncompromising attention to detail. Learn and be inspired by two of the countries leading authorities."
The aim of Trad Climbing+ is to offer a balance of safety-focussed ropework and protection skills with equally useful tactical and psychological ideas that drive the individual to succeed. Trad Climbing+ is the first book of its kind ever to include in-depth coverage of coaching-derived ideas that will allow the reader to reach new levels of confidence and ability without embarking on lengthy training programmes.
Trad Climbing+ contrasts with a number of recent publications in that it is aimed at active climbers rather than solely at professional instructors. The 280+ pages of content appeals to both complete beginners and experienced climbers wishing to make rapid progress to higher levels of difficulty.
With over 380 full colour photos and illustrations from a wide range of contributors, Trad Climbing+ is more than a guide to how to improve your trad climbing ability; it is a source of inspiration and motivation featuring photos of many of the most sought-after rock routes in the UK.
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 280+ pages.
