Getting Started Rock Climbing

Getting Started Rock Climbing by Nancy Prichard Bouchard
Rating: *****

“Getting Started Rock Climbing” was a very informative article. It listed and explained different types of rock climbing, climbing routes, type of gear, how to belay and many more interesting things.

I never knew there was so much to learn about rock climbing. When the article started talking about gear, it showed a picture on how it looks, how it’s useful and how you would use it. Such as a climbing harness, rock climbing shoes and climbing ropes. It taught you thoroughly how to belay someone with detail and how important it is to communicate with each other. This article also mentioned techniques to make climbing easier and made sure to include safety tips.

One thing I really liked about this article is that at the end it had a list of most frequently asked questions about rock climbing and gave useful answers. I would recommend this article to anyone who has never been rock climbing before because it was fascinating and enjoyable to read.
