It is not possible to learn to rock climb in a weekend, and it is irresponsible of the authors of this book to suggest it. Looking through the book, I see that the authors extend their 'instruction' to leading and building anchors! These skills should be taught by experienced climbers and take time to attain; they cannot be learned solely from a book and certainly not in the space of a weekend. Please give this one a miss, for your own sake!
