Product description

Review

It is a comprehensive guide to the whole gamut of outdoor pursuits of a vertical nature. For those looking for inspiration to try new things in the outdoors, this book is packed with a variety of ideas, illustrated by lots of exciting photographs. --CompassSport

Big old book, this, but expert climber Pete Hill has filled it with both useful and interesting stuff on just about every climbing discipline you can think of. A good release, we think. --Sport

I would have hesitation recommending this book to anyone considering taking up the sport of climbing whether on an indoor wall or a Himalayan expedition. --www.livefortheoutdoors.com
