This book seems to be more geared towards games you can play with children when teaching them climbing, but there are some good ideas for forcing you to improve various techniques, like using your legs more, thinking about body position an also concentrating more on what your arms or legs are doing.

Some firm favourites and plenty of games I've never heard of/thought of. Very useful notes on how to develop the games and which skills and strength each game improves. Sound advice. Some of the tips and games have been useful for my own training, and I dip into them all when I'm running my climbing sessions for kids at the wall. A unique book!

Format: Paperback
This book provides a collection of games, which can be adapted to fit, that is ideal for running climbing games for new climbers or climber who haven't met before. The games can be run outside or inside, and help to start developing or demonstrating technique. If you've been climbing for while then some of the these will be very familiar, but what this book provides is inspiration for developing your own games.

This specific nature of this book makes it an excellent choice for instructors, as well for those wishing to teach climbing to others and create fun sessions; such as a parent and child. You are guaranteed to come across games you haven't ever heard of, some you will never use, but on the whole the book is full of concise and fresh ideas and i would thoroughly recommend it.

A great addition to any climber's library whether you're an SPA/MIA or not. Filled with ideas to improve your climbing that are actually fun too. My kids love the corks game.
