  The books listed below should provide a good overview of the equipment, techniques, and variations to be found in the climbing community. As stated before, you can't learn to climb safely from a book. These suggested readings will supplement the training you receive from your instructor. There are many books on the topic of climbing, these represent only a small sample.

  • McClurg, David R.   Adventure of Caving. Carlsbad, NM: D&J Press, 1986.

    (See the Indexes to past issues on the Nylon Highway Page.)
