Detailed Product Description

Boulder, Sharp End, 2002. 64 pp, color cartoons. Paperback. Like New.

Betty and the Silver Spider is an instructional book like no other. The full color comic book follows characters Betty and Moe through a day of climbing at the local rock gym. Moe is just learning the ropes while Betty attempts the daunting Silver Spider route.

Humor and brilliant animation blend perfectly with expert instruction. A comic book style rock climbing book, easy to read, funny, and full of all the latest beta on learning how to rock climb and gym climb. This first book in the Doktor Krank series represents a whole new way to learn about rock climbing. Written by mountain guide and AMGA board member Craig Luebben and illustrated by climbing artist Jeremy Collins, the series is destined for universal acclaim.

In this one, the reader joins Betty and Moe as they venture into the world of gym climbing, gaining the know-how required to ascend the plastic test piece, Silver Spider. Along the way there's the introduction to knots, belaying, top roping, leading, bouldering, gym etiquette, safety measures, techniques, and more.

The information is dispensed with an ample dose of humor. Collins' insightful eye captures the nuances of gym climbing that will inform and entertain the novice climber as well as the veteran. Four-time World Cup champion Robyn Erbesfield-Raboutou has high praise for this book, saying it's "...a must for my students. It combines laughter with important information in a wholly original manner." Can't get much better than that!
