Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“The most sophisticated ‘how-to’ book I’ve seen on any climbing subject.”—Climbing magazine.
 
This thoroughly revised and updated edition of Better Bouldering presents all the techniques and tricks gleaned from the thirty-six-year bouldering career of John Sherman, America’s most noted and notorious bouldering guru. Sharing the most recent trends in techniques, equipment, and injury treatment and prevention, Sherman imparts his insider knowledge of the sport through colorful instructional text and “combat” stories from his own bouldering career—allowing both beginning and accomplished boulderers to learn from the author’s experiences rather than their own mistakes.

Among the guest contributors for this new edition are top boulderers Paul Robinson, the 2008 ABS national champion, writing on gyms and competitions; Angie Payne, the first American female to climb V13, who shares a woman’s perspective on bouldering; and Dave MacLeod,Scottish ubertrad leader, exercise physiologist, and V13 boulderer, imparting his take on bouldering-specific training. More than 300 new color photos taken at the most popular bouldering locales in the world—including Bishop, Hueco Tanks, Rocklands, and Fontainebleau—clearly and dramatically demonstrate the concepts explained in the always entertaining text.

Synopsis:

This full-color book reveals the techniques and tricks gleaned from John Sherman's 30-year career as one of America's most respected and notorious bouldering gurus. 

About the Author

John Sherman, nicknamed “Verm” (short for “Vermin”), was a notorious character in the climbing and bouldering worlds during the 1980s and 90s and is still a visible figure today, writing an occasional but always controversial blog for Deadpoint Magazine. His books include Sherman Exposed and Stone Crusade.
