Better Bouldering, 2nd
This thoroughly revised and updated new edition of Better Bouldering presents all the techniques and tricks gleaned from the thirty-year bouldering career of John Sherman, America’s most noted and notorious bouldering guru. Sharing the most recent trends in techniques, equipment, and injury treatment and prevention, Sherman imparts his insider knowledge of the sport through colorful instructional text and “combat” stories from his own bouldering career—allowing both beginning and accomplished boulderers to learn from the author’s mistakes rather than their own.
Among the guest contributors for this new edition are top boulderers Paul Robinson, the 2008 ABS national champion, writing on gyms and competitions; and Angie Payne, the first American female to climb V13, who shares a woman’s perspective on bouldering. More than 300 new color photos taken at the most popular bouldering locales throughout America and the world clearly demonstrate in dramatic fashion the concepts explained in the always entertaining text.

Interesting stories in an easy to read book. Bought this on a whim to kill some time waiting for a friend and am glad I did. Picked up a few bouldering pointers (maybe because I don't really boulder). Read full review

Mostly very basic, common sense tips. Boring. But it does have a scant few stray gems, and some interesting stories. Read full review
