In this comprehensive guide, experienced climber and coach John White shows how to climb indoors and introduces the reader to a range of exercises and techniques that will not only improve their indoor climbing but also help them to climb more safely and effectively outside. Climbing on artificial walls has been growing in popularity since the idea was first developed nearly 40 years ago and there are now indoor climbing walls and specialised indoor centres in most major UK cities as well as the means for keen climbers to construct their own walls in their gardens or garages at home. Climbing using artificial walls is a safe and controlled way for beginners to learn the techniques they need to know for climbing outdoors. It is also a means for experienced outdoor climbers to train effectively when they are not near to suitable outdoor sites or conditions are dangerous.

CLICK HERE to download the chapter on "Safety, Hazards & Awareness" from Crag Survival Handbook * Climbing etiquette you won’t learn at the gym but need to know * Advice from “Rock Maestros” Justen Sjong, Kevin Jorgeson, Tommy Caldwell, Robyn Ebersfeld and experts at the Access Fund, Black Diamond, Leave No Trace, and more * Mix of lore, how-to, humor, and entertainment — a reference book that’s easy to read and makes for good campfire talk Dogs at the trailhead, belayers in lawn chairs, long lines queued up at the classics in Eldorado Canyon — the crags seem more crowded and more crazy than ever. In fact, according to the Outdoor Industry association, in the United States more than 3.6 million people participated in climbing in 2011. Many of these new climbers are entering outdoor climbing solely through rock gyms, without having the opportunity to apprentice with an experienced friend or mentor— resulting in climbing accidents and conflicts. How do you become a responsible crag citizen? Crag Survival Handbook: The Unspoken Rules of Climbing is longtime climber Matt Samet’s personal handbook to becoming a member of the climbing community. While Samet discusses key skills like movement, dealing with fear, gear management, and how to fall, he also delves into crag culture: ethics, access, dealing with conflict, dogs and kids at the crags, and Leave No trace practices. Samet lays out the unspoken rules you need to know. Chapters include: * Heads up! Safety, Hazards, and Basic Crag Awareness * Etiquette, Access, and Impact: You’re Not the Only Fish in the Aquarium * Movement PhD: Crouch Like a Tiger, Hide Like a Dragon * Become a Rock Ninja: Tricks of the Cragger’s Trade Crag Survival Handbook guides you through the essential questions, even the questions you didn’t know you had, just like a personal climbing mentor would — minute by minute, hour by hour, skill by skill.
