The latest addition to the Mountaineers Outdoor Expert Series, Bouldering: Movement, Tactics, and Problem Solving demonstrates not just the basics of how to boulder, but also how to get better at it and take it to the next level. Whether you're a beginning climber who just started at the local gym, a competitive sport climber looking for a new challenge, or an aging alpinist who needs to take a season off from high-altitude, this guidebook offers something for everyone pursuing the art of bouldering: gear, movement, tactics, training, injury prevention, competitions, and more. Contributing photography and insights come from climbers such as Dave Graham, Jamie Emerson, Paul Robinson, Chris Schulte, Daniel Woods, Ty Landman, and many others, and an appendix highlights many of the top bouldering destinations all over the world.

Peter Beal has been climbing for more than 30 years and has focused on the sport of bouldering from the very start. Although he has bouldered at most of the major areas in the United States, he can most often be found climbing in his home state of Colorado, where he lives in Boulder with his family. A previous contributor to Rock and Ice, Climbing, Alpinist, and UKClimbing.com, you can follow his writing at MountainsandWater.com.
