The Rock Warrior's Way book. Rock Warriors Way: Mental Training. In spite of this, however, I struggled to finish the book. It's been in my library for nearly two years, and I've forced myself to read chapters, hoping to enjoy the reading, and never really did find it "enjoyable"; it felt more like work. The prime detractor for me, was the whole warrior aspect, it's not my philosophy, I knew that going in, so that's on me.

By using attention more purposefully we can understand how fear is created, deal with it effectively, and free ourselves to get back in touch with a far more powerful motivating force: our love of climbing.

Great book! Kinda new-agey but if you can get past it and focus on the true message of the book then it will help your climbing. It helps to be honest with yourself and let yourself take a real, good, hard look in the mirror when you're reading otherwise, you may not take anything away from it. It really helped me get my head right when it comes to taking risks. Since reading this book, i have found myself to be more gritty, more willing to persevere, and more likely to throw for a hold I normally wouldn't have. The author points out different kinds of ways we self-sabotage our "success" on a climb. He tackles the ego and presents various ideas in a simple, direct, and impactful way. After reading this book, my climbing has changed and the lessons i have learned have transferred into other areas of my life. Give it a shot, it'll be worth it.

Ever bail?
This book should be on the reading list of anyone who has ever bailed off a big wall (a mountain or any other uncomfortable committing endeavor) and is strong and mature enough to really confront why. By putting in the effort to truly study this book and open your mind to some unfamiliar and uncomfortable new ideas any person can learn to recognize and better control the unproductive thoughts and behaviors holding back all areas of their lives.

Warning: for successful personal improvement this book cannot be casually read. The reader must be truly open and absolutely ready to make some tough changes. Much time and effort must be supplied by the reader on an ongoing basis. This book will serve as a good reference to help direct those long-term efforts. Improvements in the mental game are not as easy to measure as on the physical side so maturity, patience, and trust are mandatory.

What a completely amazing book. I wasn't sure how Arno would fill an entire book worth of "what to think about when you climb", but i now realize that the book is about so much more than that... It has opened my eyes and my mind to so much... i'm recommending this book equally to climbers and nonclimbers alike, anyone who is interested in becoming sharper, more aware, and simply better at ANYTHING it is they do.

Oh and by the way, my climbing has significantly improved since reading this book.

I've been buying off of Amazon for a few years now, and this is the first time I've ever been compelled to write a review about a book or product. I recommend this book to any one that rock climbs regularly or wants to get serious about their climbing. This book addresses so many mental aspects of climbing that I face (and still work on improving) since the first day I ever climbed. I'm only halfway through the book and it's already helped me so much. As I read, I've been highlighting ideas/passages that really hit home for me.. I've been remembering them while on the wall, and they've actually helped me on those walls or cruxes where your mind is holding you back. This is a really interesting read and I suggest it to any one that needs help with the mental aspect of climbing. Especially if you are new to climbing. I've only been climbing about 8 months, so this book has really helped me transform my thinking. I've wanted to lend this book to my climbing partner but I don't want to let go of it, I may just buy her one for herself =)

Ilgner's book is definitely not something you'll just breeze through in an afternoon. Some of the concepts are pretty abstract, and a lot of the book's power lies in helping you to look at your own weaknessess and bad habits...which is not something all of us are eager to do. However, if you take some time with the ideas and let them sink in, you may be very surprised and grateful for what you find.

One particularly powerful concept is what Ilgner calls "wishing behavior": wishing that a hold were bigger or that the pro was better or closer to you. Once you become attuned to this you will be amazed at how common, and how unproductive, this kind of thinking is. All around you at the crag (and perhaps in your own mind), you'll suddenly hear voices wailing about how hard and impossible it all is, and how they wish the climb or the climber were different.

Well, the holds are the holds, the pro is the pro, and you are you. That's the challenge you came for, and this book can help you learn to savor it and thrive in it.

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.

Outstanding book on mental training for climbing that will leak into other aspects of your life. Highly recommended, have bought multiple copies as gifts for friends.
This book may well change your climbing dramatically for the better. It did mine.

My criticism of this book is that it is too long. That is to say his 7 core concepts are dead on, the anecdotes are useful and illustrative and his summaries are excellent.

The rest is time consuming and a little tedious, as another reviewer wrote.
