Climbing

From Single Pitch to Multipitch

Book Description

This continuation of FalconGuides’ progressive climbing series invites single pitch climbers to responsibly venture beyond the chains, into the realm of multi-pitch climbing. The farther from the ground a climb leads, the more technical proficiency and careful planning will make the difference between a worthy adventure and miserable epic. Climbing: From Single Pitch to Multi-Pitch complements instruction, ground school, and practice with a procedural approach to planning and preparation, leading anchoring and belaying, transitions, technical descent, and emergency preparedness. Before you get in way way over your head, make sure the essential skills outlined in this book have been reviewed, rehearsed, and individualized.
