"Andrew Bisharat is a senior editor at Rock and Ice magazine and he couldn't be better suited to write about sport climbing. He is an accomplished, versatile climber and an equally accomplished author. Bisharat's clear descriptions along with plentiful and instructive photographs provide thorough coverage of the sport. It's all there and all nicely done: history, gear, climbing moves, falling, belaying, motivation, and more." --2010 National Outdoor Book Award, Best Instructional
Andrew Bisharat is a senior editor of Rock and Ice magazine, and author of climbing's most popular column, "Tuesday Night Bouldering" as well as its offshoot, the weekly TNB eBlast. He is a retired dirtbag and an all-around climber with difficult ascents in bouldering, sport, trad, alpine, mixed and big-wall. However, he is most proud of jumping from climbing 5.12a to redpointing 5.14a while working a full-time 40-hour-per-week job. He lives in Carbondale, Colorado, and dreams of coming out of dirtbag retirement and once again climbing full-time.
