Description - Guide to Climbing by Tony Lourens

From conquering great peaks to scaling a challenging boulder, the thrill of climbing endures. And new techniques, materials, and advances in technology have made it possible for climbers to tackle just about any surface or rock type. This Guide covers all branches of climbing, discussing techniques, equipment, and the ethics of climbing. It also addresses mountain leadership, from the physical aspects of leading a pitch to the mental challenges of inspiring confidence. Sections on advanced training explore controlling fear and specialised physical preparation.
