Book Description:

Rock climbing is an extreme sport enjoyed by millions of people in the United States; perhaps this activity appeals to the stereotypical American urge for the thrill of risk and the pursuit of adventure. Not all forms of rock climbing need involve deadly risk, however, as forms such as bouldering and sport climbing involve relatively minimal chance of serious injury.
