The Rock Warrior’s Way: Mental Training for Climbers
Mental training is scarcely covered in the climbing literature, yet it is as important to performance as strength, flexibility, and technique. In his unique approach to mental training, Arno Ilgner draws essential elements from the rich ‘warrior’ literature, as well as from sports psychology, and combines these with his extensive climbing experience to create The Rock Warrior`s Way. Here is a comprehensive program for learning how to focus your mental resources during a challenging climb.

The Rock Warriors Way book review by Cliff
This book is special. It was recommended by an experienced climber friend who benefitted from its lessons about dealing realistically, productively and powerfully with the challenges of climbing and also with the challenges of life. I’m a novice climber, but it helped me deal realistically with my fear of heights and exposure, as a result of which I successfully and enjoyably ascended a 600-foot via ferrata in the British Columbia mountains recently. It helped me beat phantom fears, eliminate excuses and rationalizations, and make decisions in a logical, step-by-step manner — which are key mental tools for climbing and for living. I love this book.
