In addition to discussing basic topics such as gear placement, anchor building, rope management, route finding, multi-pitch climbing, the author also discusses self-rescue basics and decision making. Photographs give step by step instructions, while drawings by Tami Knight are emphasize important points.

lisaeA Good Book!

Voted 5/5

I originally bought this book because I recognized the location of many of the photographs. A silly reason to buy a book, perhaps, but I have found it a valuable resource.

I have had the privilege of meeting the author several times, while climbing. The first time I met her, I happened to have my copy of the book with me in the car, so I ran back and got it, so she could sign it.

Heidi's enthusiasm for teaching climbing comes across in the book as it does in person.

We sell this one where I work, and I've read most of it. It does a really good job at explaining the basics and I got a lot out of it, being the non-climber that I am.
