When the rock is 1500 feet tall or more--one long sheer face with precious few holds--let first-class big wall man Jared Ogden give you a leg up. Dangling sweaty-palmed from a 3000-foot cliff for days on end, Jared Ogden taught himself to climb his first big wall by trial and error. Why should you have to do the same? The man who went on to free climb El Capitan and the Nose in less than 24 hours wants to jump-start your education. Whether you're a weekend warrior or a full-on wall addict, you'll learn the tools of the trade and how to use them, including modern speed and free climbing tactics that have revolutionized wall climbing. Odgen will have you racked an ready for prime big wall climbing destinations in North America including Yosemite, Zion, Rocky Mountain and the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Parks; the Alaskan Range; and the Bugaboos of British Columbia.
