  • A very up to date text book on aid climbing and big wall by Chris McNamara, a man who Climbing Magazine have estimated has spent 3% of his life on El Cap!

    This step-by-step aid climbing text book takes you from your first step in an etrier 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 (HVS/E1) 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. Although aimed at total beginners, our resident big wall climber found numerous bits of useful information in this book, some of which left him wondering how he'd managed to succeed on the two El Cap routes he's done so far and thinks that anyone heading to Yosemite for the big walls should read this book!

    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.
