Rock Climbing provides basic information on belaying, leading and rappelling techniques and offers advice on equipment, environmental protection and First Aid.

Every climber comes to the point where they want to leave the climbing gym and exchange plastic handles for the feeling of real rocks beneath their palms. They want to breathe in fresh air, enjoy the sun, wind, and the scenery surrounding them. In order to do that, you first have to train for it.

In rock climbing, unlike indoor climbing, you are responsible for securing yourself. This promises more excitement and a more intense experience, but also requires more knowledge and both physical and mental strength. To successfully master the first steps in learning rock climbing, this book will provide you with the right techniques, the crucial safety procedures, and the essential equipment. Numerous photos illustrate the challenging and complex sequences and movements in an easily understandable way. In addition, an introduction to indoor climbing is included in the book.
