Crack Climbing! shows you the basics of this exhilarating sport with the help of 2 accomplished masters.
Crack Climbing! By Lisa Gnade and Steve Petro Crack climbing continues to be a hugely popular pursuit among the general climbing population--in fact, in recent years crack climbing (or "trad" climbing) has experienced a significant resurgence. Through the use of text, photos, and illustrations, this book explores in-depth the wide range of techniques required to successfully climb cracks. The book starts with how to make the transition from indoor climbing and sport climbing to traditional crack climbing, then moves on to cover topics such as jamming techniques (finger, hand, fist, foot, body), strategies on when and where to place protection, strategies that apply to specific rock types (the soft sandstone of Canyonlands vs. the slippery granite of Yosemite), strategies that apply to specific rock features (low-angle slabs vs. overhanging roof cracks), and information on how to obtain the psychological edge required to be a successful crack climber.
