Praise for previous editions

 

“Well researched and right on.” —Lynn Hill, Wold Cup champion and first woman to climb 5.14

From the Back Cover

In the sport of rock climbing, 5.12 is a magical grade. Looked upon as the door to the elite levels of difficulty, 5.12 is believed by many intermediate climbers to be out of their reach, but that’s where How to Climb 5.12 comes into play. This performance manual dispels the myth surrounding 5.12 and teaches average climbers that they can achieve heights previously considered the exclusive domain of the full-time climber.

How to Climb 5.12 can help intermediate climbers make the physical and mental jump to advanced climbing ability. It offers streamlined tips and suggestions on such critical issues as cutting-edge strength training, mental training, and climbing strategy. How to Climb 5.12 is the perfect manual to guide you on the road to mastery and to help make the trip as short as possible.

Inside you’ll find a self-assessment test to optimize your training, techniques and drills for accelerated learning of climbing skills, exercises for building strength and endurance, strategies for managing fear and building confidence, and tactics for on-sight climbing and working redpoint projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be in every climber's library June 16 2012
By John Doe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This should be in every climber's library, along with Horst's other works. His material is backed by sound sports science and legitimately works. This is the recently-released third edition of this book, which updates it with some of the same, more recent information he has included in Training for Climbing and Maximum Climbing. Although there is a lot of overlap with those works, this book focuses more on higher end climbers. It not only works for those trying to get to 5.12, but for those trying to advance at all in those higher grades of 5.12+.

The self-evaluations in this work are less elaborate than in his other works, especially compared to Conditioning for Climbing, which had very good evaluations. That is a shame because his better ones can be very helpful. In spite of that this is a great book, especially when combined with Conditioning for Climbing and Maximum Climbing (if you are high-end enough to use this book, you may want to skip Training for Climbing, which is largely the same material but aimed at climbers of all levels).

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but repetative. Good but repetative. Dec 8 2013
By Chris Lykins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Good but repetative. Too much of the book is dedicated to telling what the book will eventually be about. Some more diagrams and photos might also help explain the exercises. Its a good book, but repetative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome read, has helped me gain at least 1 letter grade by reading and doing basic exercises Dec 5 2013
By Eugene Mak - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Awesome book, very very comprehensive. If I manage to complete everything, it's fairly comprehensive. Obviously the book won't make you climb 5.12, you climb it ;)

Substitute 5.12 for whatever grade you want to climb.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good if you need a motivational talk Nov. 27 2013
By David Kendall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
How to Climb 5.12 is more motivational talk than climbing guidance. There is some helpful material on scheduling, recovery, and cost-benefit assessment of different activities. However, it could stand more clear exercises for building climbing skills, strength, and eliminating fear of falling.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! Sept. 25 2013
