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.

Author Chris McNamara has climbed El Cap more than 70 times and has set several speed records there. He has climbed more than 100 big walls, is a noted wingsuit BASE jumper and is the founder/CEO of SuperTopo, publisher of highly-regarded climbing guides for areas ranging from Alaska to Red Rocks with special attention to Yosemite.

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.

Details:

  • A detailed 6-month plan to get to the top of El Cap.
  • Photo sequences for key sections.
  • 40+ color action photos from Yosemite and Zion.
  • Gear info and buying advice.
  • Bonus speed climbing and clean climbing chapters.
