Book: Girl on the Rocks

I’ll take a girl on the rocks, please. Katie Brown’s book Girl on the Rocks (Falcon Guides, $20) is a great introduction for any beginning climber and an inspiration for rock-hard veterans as well. This book is not an instruction manual; it focuses less on training or specifics and more on inspiration and fear management. Packed with interviews and advice from the best female climbers in the world, this book is all about chick power and getting amped to go vertical.
