1001 Climbing Tips kan vara världens bästa toalettlektyr. Inte för att den är dålig, tvärtom. Lagom långa avsnitt om de mest vitt skilda aspekter inom klättring innebär att man kan hoppa mellan avsnitt som man känner för beroende på toalettbesökets längd och karaktär. Du kan till och med läsa om att gå på toaletten när du är på toaletten...meta.

Andy Kirkpatrick har med 1001 Climbing Tips skapat en outsinlig källa till information gällande klättringens olika discipliner. Både stora livsavgörande tips och små pyttegrejor som gör livet som klättrare lättare och roligare. Andy beskriver bokens innehåll bäst själv; "For a more extreme taste of this book, imagine an alien came down to earth, stuck a straw in a climber’s head, one who’d been climbing for about thirty years, and proceeded to suck out their brain; then transmogrified all that it contained in to a 57,000 word book of climbing tips. Well this is just such a book!"

Bokens olika avsnitt innehåller följande:

Basics (1-240) The first part of the book covers a wide range of subjects, varying from how to best rope up and stopping your boots from stinking, to racking your gear correctly and how to sleep in a harness. This section is designed for both novice and experienced climbers.

Big Wall (241-347) Written for anyone tackling large multi pitch climbs, with advanced topics such as jumaring, hauling and speed climbing. These tips will be an aid both to those new to multi pitch climbing, as well as the more experienced climber.

Ice (348-370) Tips on all aspects of ice climbing, including movement, protection, ways of approaching mental strength, and not falling off!

Mixed (371-392) How to use your tools on snowed up rock, and focused primarily on Scottish and Alpine winter skills.

Mountain (393-694) If you’re not a rock climber then this section has a lot of tips on living and staying alive in the mountains, be that in the UK, Alps or greater ranges.

Safety (695-785) The name of the game in climbing is staying alive, and coming home in one piece. This section covers loose rock, rescue, dealing with heat and getting caught out.

Training (786-863) A wide range of tips on strength and endurance training and diet for climbers.

Stuff (864-2017) A mix of esoteric, such as how to rap off a fifi hook, what books to read, how to get sponsored and going to the toilet.
