The Rock Warrior’s Way: Mental Training for Climbers, first published in 2003, outlines the foundation of the Warrior’s Way ® material. Espresso Lessons takes the material into practical climbing situations. It is the “how to” application of The Rock Warrior’s Way, intended to build upon and complement it.
Mental fitness training is simply improving your ability to keep attention in the moment. The most challenging—and interesting— moment in rock climbing is when your mind doubts whether or not you can continue climbing. Knowing when it is appropriate to push through this doubt and when to back off is critical for taking appropriate risks.
How to Big Wall Climb is the first step-by-step aid climbing guide that takes you from your first step in an aider to the summit of El Capitan. Like anything worthwhile, big wall climbing requires hard work. That said, it’s not that difficult to get to the top of Yosemite’s El Capitan, the top prize of the world’s rock climbers. To scale El Cap you only have to free climb 5.9 and know very basic aid climbing skills. The daunting challenge is to put those skills together efficiently, a trick most climbers never master.
That is where this book comes in. It’s the first How To big wall book specifically organized and clearly designed to address the process of building big wall skills, step by step.
If you are a reasonably good climber psyched to do El Cap or a similar bad ass big wall, you probably can do it. Each week read a new chapter in this book and follow instructions…
