This is a spectacular article. Kudos to you, sir.

You've done a terrific job consolidating the info to a single page. So many videos, climbing related pages, and books out there have the information, but in fractured sections by comparison. This flows well and is easy to digest. Nice accessibility.

Thanks for the article.

Happy Climbing,
Matt

Cool.
On a similar note, this came across my facespace page:

It's a free e book, I did have to give my address and phone number, but I'm ok with that.
I don't think John is going to call me.
