Has anyone read Arno Ilgner’s book ‘The Rock Warrior’s way’? What did you think?

excellent book and well worth the read i reckon- i ordered it from amazon i think. . if theres one thing about climbing, it's that you can always improve.

I am reading it currently (for Review in next Rock mag). So far I am a bit skeptical. It has some good points - but it also has a lot of 'new age' fluff and lingo.

Good to know the thread is topical and look forward to reading your review in Rock. I wonder if the book might be more useful for someone who isn't gun already? People who are climbing well on lead would most likely already be engaging the mindset Ilgner describes(?), and therefore cringe at the fluff and lingo used as it violates their world. Others still trying to iron out kinks in their leading might be stoked to have someone finally clearly articulate what have been vague frustrations and offer a solution ... That said - I haven't formed a firm opinion yet, I'm still in Chapter 4.

a big heavy book might help your climbing, every time you open it or hold it, but otherwise nothing much beats actually doing it as the best way to learn. and since the mental aspect is either gaining confidence or overcoming fear (if they aren't the same thing), you can't overcome fear sitting on a couch, reading a book (unless it is so heavy it threatens to crush you....)
