Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Still the best book on improving at climbing ... worth every penny and more. — Dave MacLeod, online climbing coach blog

  • In full color with 52 practical training exercises designed to advance technique
  • Detailed anatomical illustrations explain climbing physiology
  • Includes an 85-minute DVD that shows concepts in action

    A dynamic package of training material from a pair of expert coaches, The Self-Coached Climber offers comprehensive instruction, from the basics of gripping holds to specific guidelines for developing a customized improvement plan. Hague and Hunter base their methods on the four fundamental components of all human movement--balance, force, time, and space--and explain how to apply these principles to achieve efficient results. The DVD presents live demonstrations of training exercises and features an original documentary of a 5.14a/b redpoint attempt by Adam Stack and Chris Lindner.

    Self-Coached Climber was named a finalist in the Mountain Exposition Category at the 2007 Banff Mountain Festival. For more information go to: http: //www.banffmountainfestivals.ca/festivals/2007/book/finalists.asp
