Every climber comes to the point where they want to leave the climbing gym and exchange plastic handles for the feeling of real rocks beneath their palms. They want to breathe in fresh air, enjoy the sun, wind, and the scenery surrounding them. In order to do that, you first have to train for it. Rock Climbing provides basic information on belaying, leading and rappelling techniques and offers advice on equipment, environmental protection and First Aid.

Gabi Flecken is a Professor for Sports and Kinetic Sciences at the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany. She installed climbing as a training program, teaching her students the manifold possibilities which this sport offers.
