Publisher Comments:

The essential manual for intermediate climbers who want to make the jump to advanced climbing ability—with new color photos

 

In the sport of rock climbing, 5.12 is a magical grade of difficulty—the rating that separates intermediate climbers from the sports elite. Many intermediate climbers mistakenly believe that climbs of 5.12 difficulty are simply beyond their reach. This revised and updated edition of Eric Horsts best-selling instructional manual dispels that myth, and shows average climbers how they can achieve heights previously considered the exclusive domain of the full-time climber.

 

How to Climb 5.12 is a performance guidebook that will help climbers attain the most rapid gains in climbing ability possible. Hörst provides 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 help intermediate climbers quickly along the road to mastery.
