      Overview

      This is a handbook on how sport climbing techniques, materials and training methods have evolved – an evolution that has made sport climbing increasingly popular and turned it into an Olympic discipline.

      Today, sport climbing is the fastest growing sport in Italy and one of the fastest growing in the world. It is coached much more thoroughly than ever by a new generation of coaches and trainers, drawing more and more very young enthusiasts.

      This handbook embraces everything that has been challenged and revolutionised in recent years and includes an inspiring image gallery.

      About the author

In 2006 he opened the hardest Big Wall route in South America, in Peru, and in spite of various attempts by many top climbers Infinite Jest and Follie di fine Estate are still unequalled. He has written dozens of articles for mountaineering and climbing magazines around the world and has authored climbing and mountaineering books for RCS and Versante Sud. Since 2016 he has been a climbing coach for the Ragni di Lecco team and since 2018 for the national team athlete Beatrice Colli.
