Excellent book for bringing along to the rock and practicing with friends.

It is thin enough to fit alongside your guide book in your pack.

It is concise enough so you don't get lost in lots of reading.

It covers all the knots I use and a few more.

Of course, you should practice the knots before you go up the rock."
