Chapters concentrate on highsteps, side pulls, laybacks, stemming, barndooring, cracks, finding rests, swapping hands and feet, mantles, roofs, using momentum, and dihedrals. It also has two chapters on gripping the rock. The intent of this book is to explain how to actually climb, not how to use gear.The book uses stairs to explain certain moves allowing the reader to experience these moves at home. Other explanations are supported with diagrams. Key points are separated out for emphasis. Appendices describe the climbing process, a few thoughts for the new leader, analysis of climbing forces, and a glossary of terms.
