Anybody have it? Looks great. I have the awesome Pease book already, still need to read it, but I'm sorely tempted to buy Pete's as well.

Edit: Fuck it. Ordered a copy.

Pete's book arrived today, but I haven't had a chance to read it yet. Skimming through, it looks very comprehensive and very detailed.

I’ve finished the first section (finger cracks) and I think the book is incredible so far. I’m fairly new at climbing cracks right now, but the way the book is written makes learning techniques way easy. It’s also super thorough and covers way more individual techniques for each type of jam than I knew existed. I’d definitely say it’s worth the money, I’ve already learned a ton from it and I’m only to finger cracks.

I bought a signed copy dedicated to my son as a Xmas gift - direct from the publisher. Book looks great!

Does the book talk about how to train finger/hand/offwidth cracks and/or how to build appropriate training tools?
