I wanted to thank everyone who recommended this book - I'm barely into it and already applying the concepts on the wall! It should be a required read for every newbie.

While at home, it's helping me visualize why something didn't work. While climbing, it's helping me try something I wouldn't have thought of on pure intuition.

Thanks again!!
I don't care how new it is, The Self-Coached Climber is a classic and once this book is paired with the new book Redpoint, together they will constitute a sort of bible for climbing technique. So, be sure to get the new book by the same authors, Redpoint, which should cover more advanced material, in the same format that makes The Self-Coached Climber so accessible (lots of big, instructional illustrations, DVD video demonstrations, etc...).

Here is what Dan Hague had to say about it:

"Look for our second book entitled "Redpoint: The Self Coached Climbers Guide to Redpoint and On-sight Climbing" due out in October.

We help climbers learn routes faster and with less effort so they can send in less time.

We lay out the process of learning and memorizing sequences, rests, and movement nuance faster so you can send harder routes in less time using less effort. There’s also an on-sight performance section in which we help climbers read routes from afar and tips on applying the process to bouldering. Plus the physical conditioning and emotional response elements pertinent to each type of climbing."


It will be released October 1 and you can pre-order it now:
