⁓ How to Get Started Rock Climbing, Simply ⁓
If you’re on this page I presume you’re a new climber—the same spot I was about six years ago. See, I had moved to California and wanted a new hobby, so rock climbing seemed like a great option. Quickly, I realized that getting into rock climbing is hard. There are big learning curves that serve as a barrier, and it can be intimidating, as well. I also found it extremely difficult to find simple, reliable, and trustworthy information about the sport.
I wrote this eBook to help make it easier for new climbers … to make rock climbing more accessible, understandable, and fun for individuals like yourself.
Use this eBook to find all the fundamental information about rock climbing in one convenient and carefully crafted eBook. I worked with professional photographer Michael Lim for stunning, full-page imagery, and I’ve added helpful links to relevant articles.
