It includes exercises for working on movement, training for competitions, sensible physical conditioning, and injury prevention. Longtime climber and author Michelle Hurni explains how to evaluate a climber's skill level, set goals that everyone can live with, and teach kids to "climb with the brain." She details dozens of games and activities designed to motivate young climbers while teaching them proper movement and improving their technique. Additionally, Hurni explains how to make a safe transition from climbing in a gym to climbing in the outdoors. (6 x 9, 256 pages, b&w photos, diagrams, charts)
