Top Customer Reviews
We have a family friend who has borrowed this book to augment lesson plans to homeschool their kid who also happens to be really into rock climbing. The content is engaging and the writing is backed up by tons of citations and references to the scientific literature. I don't think the author realizes how useful her content is to an entirely different audience when used in this manner.
From a climbing perspective, Sarah has hit another home run, or at least a double, as she has managed to leverage her climbing industry connections to get top-level climbing photographers to contribute to this resource.
This book is an absolute must-have for climbers who also happen to be geologists, and at the current price it is a steal.
