Format: Paperback
I read this book...did a lot of practicing, (got spanked a few times) and then climbed the Washinton Column's Southern Route & Prow along with the regular route on Half Dome and Zodiac on El Cap!
No book will make you a good aid climber...but this book does as much as possible.
If you're in doubt - buy it, its definetely worth the cover price.

3 of 6 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on January 26, 1998
Format: Paperback
The best way to learn to aid and climb big walls with the exception of going out there and doing it. A good reference for beginners. The illustrations are a little corny. Looked like a throw back to the 1970's. Illustrations probably lifted from "Climbing Big Walls," edited by Mike Strassman.
