Crack Climbing!


Addictive, but usually legal (!) crack climbing, from low-angle slab cracks to soaring jamming cracks, is a big part of the rock climbing picture. This new guide covers everything you've ever wanted to know about cracks but were to afraid to ask - it covers jamming techniques (finger, hand, fist, foot, body), strategies for climbing specific crack types such as chimneys, underclings and roof cracks, it shows how to safely lead crack climbs and place protection and describes techniques for efficient movement and strength recovery while climbing. The book is illustrated throughout with colour photos and includes an overview of the unique crack types found at the worlds most famous climbing areas - 'Supercrack' here we come..
