I think the book was a good read!

I guess you may be wondering why I gave it a 3. Well, it wasn't really like the greatest book ever read, nor did it really change my life. But the 3 also doesn't mean it was written poorly. It just means it was a good, instructional read. I learned plenty from it, and I'm glad I read it! It has plenty of tips and bits of knowledge that will help any new climber to move up another grade (whether that's 5.9 or 5.13).

Also, the book should be judged by the title. Thi

“How To Climb 5.15” should be required reading for all novice, intermediate & advanced Rock Climbers. This book outlines everything you need to know and includes valuable first hand, tested experience in developing your skills, preventing injuries and getting the absolute most out of climbing.

I am a novice climber and have been climbing for just over around seven months. Within the first couple of months of climbing this book was recommended to me numerous times. I kept “meaning” to get arou

This book, by a local MD climber, really shook up how I train and climb, and led to me climbing better (and enjoying it more) than ever before last season. Great advice on the foundations (work on skills, not strength) and injury prevention and the mental game. A lot of principles that apply across sports or in other areas of life.

Pretty good book which gives solid advice for getting better at climbing. Has both work out schedules and general advice for how to focus your practice to maximize improvements.

One thing I'll probably immediately start doing is some of the pre-hab exercises in effort to reduce chance of injury.

Good book. Helped with mindset and preparedness. Good info about nutrition and exercise programs. I'm basically doing everything wrong is what this book is telling me. Have my work cut out for me.
I thought this book gave some useful tips for training both mentally and physically, giving me a different aim for my focus when training and when climbing. Excited to see where it takes me!
