Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a well written book with lots of diagrams but the focus is more on safety, equipment, and instructing others rather than actual climbing. As a beginner it will teach you how to tie the basic knots and give lots of useful background information about equipment and the walls. It will also give you some help on climbing technique but not nearly enough compared with the length of the book. Much of the book is aimed at instructors and a lot of that material is not of interest to beginners.

It's a good book, but for beginners there may be better options. I'd have liked much more material on basic climbing skills and could have done without the more complex topics for instructors. Beginners and instructors are really different audiences and trying to address both with the same book is a problem.

Vey little content on 'skills for climbing wall users' and pretty heavy on dealing with groups as an instructor.

This makes the title slightly misleading in my opinion. If you're looking for hints, tips and diagrams for improving your technique as a wall climber you'd be better off looking at other books on the subject.

Format: Paperback
I got this book while studying for my Climbing Wall Award, and I found it extremely helpful, relevant and well laid out.

It covers all levels of climbing from beginner to advanced, and also contains information relevant to instructors. It is an excellent introduction to indoor climbing - it talks through grades, equipment, knots, techniques... anything you could possibly need to know. It also contains sections on running groups, abseiling and leading.

I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who is involved in indoor climbing, or who is looking to get into the sport. It's well laid-out, not too wordy and contains a wealth of information and helpful hints, as well as high-quality diagrams and reference photographs.
