Best rock climbing book to learn from 4-Mar-2011 At 1:38:39 PM neverclimbed32
Like Ed said. If you want a good read then "House on Pooh Cnr" is an excellent choice.

If you want to learn to climb rock then join a club or sign up for a course with a reputable provider with suitably qualified guide. Failing that hook up with suitably experienced peers who are willing to share some knowledge with you.
Yes gym climbing is not rock climbing so when I see you can climb a 24 in the gym, I read that you are even more able to climb your way into trouble tham your average noob.

All those instructional books are good but in my experience the best book to learn from is "Accidents in North American Mountineering". Benefit from the experience, sometimes fatal of others, as to what the consquences are of lack of attention to sometimes even the minutest detail.
