Buchbeschreibung Cicerone Press Okt 2009, 2009. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 216x140x14 mm. Neuware - The introduction of the Climbing Wall Award (CWA) scheme in 2008 confirmed that indoor climbing has now become a highly popular sport in its own right. This is the first guidebook to focus on it exclusively and is designed for indoor climbers of both sorts - those who use walls as training venues for their next day out on the rock and those who never climb anywhere else. The book will help beginners learn the basics and then progress to more challenging climbing, indoors and out. It is also for those who instruct at climbing walls. The author, one of the UK's top climbing instructors, shares his experience and advice on topics such as equipment, warm-up, basic techniques, top and bottom roping, leading, abseiling and bouldering and working with groups. The book is illustrated with color photographs throughout and uses 'Tips' and 'Notes' boxes to highlight important points. 192 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781852845841
