The aim of Trad Climbing+ is to offer a balance of safety-focused ropework and protection skills with equally useful tactical and psychological ideas that drive the individual to succeed. Trad Climbing+ is the first book of its kind ever to include in-depth coverage of coaching-derived ideas that will allow the reader to reach new levels of confidence and ability without embarking on lengthy training programmes.
Trad Climbing+ contrasts with a number of recent publications in that it is aimed at active climbers rather than solely at professional instructors. The 280+ pages of content appeal to both complete beginners and experienced climbers wishing to make rapid progress to higher levels of difficulty.
“The best how-to book on trad climbing to date. I only wish it was around when I started climbing.”
