Item Description
  • In full color with 52 practical training exercises designed to advance technique
  • Detailed anatomical illustrations explain climbing physiology

A dynamic package of training material from a pair of expert coaches, this book, The Self-Coached Climber offers comprehensive instruction, from the basics of gripping holds to specific guidelines for developing a customized improvement plan. Hague and Hunter base their methods on the four fundamental components of all human movement--balance, force, time, and space--and explain how to apply these principles to achieve efficient results. The DVD presents live demonstrations of training exercises and features an original documentary of a 5.14a/b redpoint attempt by Adam Stack and Chris Lindner.

"A quantum leap forward . . . The Self-Coached Climber takes the standard model of climbing and demolishes it on the first page. . . . You'd be wise to bet that within a handful of years, it will be the preferred text for most technique and training programs in the U. S." --Jay Young,
