    * Includes an 85-minute DVD that shows concepts in action A dynamic package of training material from a pair of expert
    coaches, The Self-Coached Climber offers comprehensive instruction, from the basics of gripping holds to specific
    guidelines for developing a customized improvement plan. Hague and Hunter base their methods on the four fundamental

    efficient results. The DVD presents live demonstrations of training exercises and features an original documentary of a
