  • Mental training and tactics
  • Technique training to improve your climbing movement, shown through step-by-step photography
  • Training for power and endurance

Written by an experienced coach and guide, and always taking safety as a primary concern, the book acts as a companion to training, and will reinforce learning to help the climber to put their skills into practice.
