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.

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.

Editorial Reviews

Rock & Ice magazine
...a well-organized and highly informative resource for almost any level of climber.
8a.nu
Bouldering - Movement, Tactics and Problem Solving is just an excellent training book that is actually almost as interesting for route climbers. There are 224 pages worth of reading including everything you need and it targets everything from beginners to the advanced boulderer.
Gripped magazine
While there are many training and how-to books for roped climbing, few books exist that specifically focus on bouldering. Thankfully, Bouldering: Movement, Tactics, and Problem Solving addresses this oversight by providing boulderers a single and complete source of training, technique, and equipment information...This is a worthy addition to any boulderer's bookshelf.
Mountain magazine
...an ideal introduction to the sport for anyone wanting a comprehensive understanding of movement and tactics for success.
Gearflogger
...Beal's book should be on your shelf and in your head.
Climberism
Beal takes the reader through everything that needs to be known about bouldering: history, gear, style and, most importantly, training. With an excellent foreword by Dave Graham that takes you inside the mind of one of the best climbers out there, the book is a complete package.
Deadpoint magazine
Beal was able to weave together the hard facts, tactics, and movement of bouldering with the reasons that we want to boulder in the first place.
The Colorado Daily - Jenn Fields
....will probably turn your friends into better climbers -- maybe better than you.
