Climbing: From Gym to Crag is written by experts who teach climbing for a living. These long-time instructors have a clear, practical understanding of the different skills and climbing technique needed to go from climbing in the gym to climbing on real rock. From building anchors to leading and self-rescue, they'll teach you how to make the transition safely.
