Climbing: From Gym to Crag helps indoor climbers safely make the transition from a controlled climbing environment, which requires few technical skills and presents no objective dangers, to the outdoor environment, where the risks and rewards require a well-honed set of basic skills and awareness. Each of the four sections-Indoor Climbing, Sport Climbing, Traditional Climbing, and Retreat Techniques-contains instructional chapters on safety, belaying, technique, leading, and anchors. Transitional skills are taught in a logical progression so climbers can begin at the point in the text that their skills dictate. Key Transition Exercises walk climbers through steps on the ground so they can safely master techniques that are not found indoors or are done differently outdoors.
