'I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to take their climbing to the next level. The authors put their wealth of climbing experience into an entertaining and easy-to-read manual.' Chris Sharma

Until now, instructional books for climbers have taken a largely negative approach, concentrating on how to reduce the inherent risks of the sport, and mentioning only in passing the equally important skills required to get to the top. This book represents a watershed in the genre. Coming from a coaching perspective, Sport Climbing+ is packed with inspirational photos, humorous illustrations, and two lifetime's worth of learning how to succeed at the toughest of all sports.

The book takes a practical approach, focusing on the improvements that climbers can make immediately, without embarking on lengthy training programs. Written in a highly accessible, jargon-free style, Sport Climbing+ is sure to be useful to all climbers wishing to get involved with sport climbing; from complete beginners making their first trip outside after leaving the wall, to experienced athletes just trying to find that extra bit of help required for their latest 8a redpoint.

This, the second edition of Sport Climbing+, contains updated information on belay devices as well as some changes to the multi-pitching chapter. There are also many new photos throughout better illustrating the text.

Including chapters on: Starting Out, Gear; Ropework, Tactics, Multi-pitching, Onsighting, Redpointing, The Mind, Technique, Training, Self-care and Destinations.
