Back cover copy

For women intrigued by the sport of climbing but intimidated by its male dominance and stereotypeas extreme, Girl on the Rocks is a monumental and essential resource, providing instructions on technique, strength, and mental agility from a woman s perspective. Through the sage advice of one of the world s foremost female climbers and the lens of an internationally acclaimed photographer, women learn that climbing is more fun than dangerous, that overcoming fear can boost self-esteem, and that the fitness benefits are tremendous. Most women learn climbing from men, but the sport is different for a woman both physically and psychologically and it is empowering for women to learn about climbing from girls who ve been on the rocks themselves. Bringing the sport to life alongside the book s numerous color photos, Katie Brown s interviews with female climbers from a young girl to a sixty-something professional climber reveal, on a more intimate level, what the sport has done for them."
