Crabtree Publishing Company, Oct 31, 2003 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 32 pages
Ages 6 to 12 years. Nothing embodies patience and strength like rock climbing. This sport requires forethought, artistry, and courage. Athletes who climb do it because they love a challenge and the feeling of being on top of the world. This book allows children to get that same feeling, thanks to beautiful colour photographs and a text that leaves no stone unturned. It's onward and upward with fascinating information on: bouldering -- a daring style of climbing without ropes!; a look at the history of climbing; the frozen limits of ice climbing; the thrills of climbing indoor rock walls.
