Usually a "dictionary" is a boring, dry, reference book and nothing more. Not so with Climbing Dictionary. This book defines the basic terms that every climber should know - equipment, techniques - but it also explains the meaning and the story behind the lingo and slang terms commonly used among climbers.

Definitely a fun read and a must-have for any climber or anyone who knows a climber and wants to understand what in the heck they're talking about sometimes!

A must-have for any rock climber or anyone who just wants to know what the heck climbers are talking about.
