How to Climb Harder

Want to take your climbing to the next level? Here are the things you really need to know. From simple techniques (which can help erase bad habits) to training for the hardest climbs. In each section there's a series of exercises from simple to more complex movements that you can practise at your local climbing wall, crag, boulders or at home to improve all aspects of your climbing. Climb harder, more safely, with more confidence and less effort than before. Whatever your climbing goals, there's something here for everyone to focus on in order to become a better climber.

The latest climbing book from Pesda Press is due out on the 1st of September. Available from all good bookshops or online at the Pesda Press website (see below).
