Basic Rockcraft

Author: Royal Robbins

Basic Rockcraft by Royal Robbins is exactly that—a premier on basic rock climbing techniques including movement, equipment, belaying, rappelling, aid climbing, knots, pitoncraft, nutcraft, as well as a great section on climbing ethics and style. The book, which was published in 1971, is somewhat dated but still chock full of useful information by Robbins, a master climber and at the time, one of the best all-around climbers in the world.
