How to Big Wall Climb is the first step-by-step aid climbing guide that takes you from your first step in an aider to the summit of El Capitan. Like anything worthwhile, big wall climbing requires hard work. That said, it's not that difficult to get to the top of Yosemite's El Capitan, the top prize of the world's rock climbers. To scale El Cap you only have to free climb 5.9 and know very basic aid climbing skills. The daunting challenge is to put those skills together efficiently, a trick most climbers never master. That is where this book comes in.
 
It's the first How To big wall book specifically organized and clearly designed to address the process of building big wall skills, step by step. Author Chris McNamara has climbed El Cap more than 70 times and has set several speed records there. He has climbed more than 100 big walls, is a noted wingsuit BASE jumper and is the founder/CEO of SuperTopo, publisher of highly-regarded climbing guides for areas ranging from Alaska to Red Rocks with special attention to Yosemite. If you are a reasonably good climber psyched to do El Cap or a similar bad ass big wall, you probably can do it. Each week read a new chapter in this book and follow instructions..

7 Key Points...

The Objective - Climb The Nose of El Capitan (or similar bad ass big wall).
Who can climb El Cap - Anyone who can free climb 5.8 and master basic aid skills. And who is psyched!
The Cost - The cost of this book and ingenuity to borrow.
Time commitment - Two to six months, depending on how badly you
want to climb a big wall.

The prize - Climbing El Cap and enjoying the process.
How to start - Read this book, borrow or buy the necessary big wall gear.
Guidelines - Your instructions are simple: Every week, open
the book to the next chapter and get 'er done!
