This guide will get you out of your comfort zone and show you the basics of one of the most exhilarating sports-traditional lead climbing. Author: Heidi Pesterfield. Softcover; black-and-white photographs and illustrations. Wilderness Press; copyright 2007. Step-by-step descriptions of equipment, rope management and techniques are accompanied by close-up photos and fun but explicative illustrations. Images and illustrations show situations you might encounter and how to deal with them. Learn how to place lead gear, build multidirectional anchors, navigate routes and lead multipitch ascents. Physical, mental and technical preparation are emphasized throughout the text.
Unlike other types of climbing, trad lead climbing requires placing your own gear from the first move on up - and Traditional Lead Climbing by Heidi Peterfield is the guide to equipment, rope management, and step-by-step techniques to lead safely.
