Detailed Product Description
Colorado, 1997, 1st edition. 120 pp, b/w photos. New paperback.

In the sport of rock climbing, 5.12 is a magical grade. Looked upon as the door to the elite levels of difficulty, 5.12 is believed by many intermediate climbers to be out of their reach, but that’s where How to Climb 5.12 comes into play. This performance manual dispels the myth surrounding 5.12 and teaches average climbers that they can achieve heights previously considered the exclusive domain of the full-time climber.

How to Climb 5.12 can help intermediate climbers make the physical and mental jump to advanced climbing ability. It offers streamlined tips and suggestions on such critical issues as cutting-edge strength training, mental training, and climbing strategy. How to Climb 5.12 is the perfect manual to guide you on the road to mastery and to help make the trip as short as possible.

Inside you’ll find a self-assessment test to optimize your training, techniques and drills for accelerated learning of climbing skills, exercises for building strength and endurance, strategies for managing fear and building confidence, and tactics for on-sight climbing and working redpoint projects.
