Rock Climbing Books

Could anyone recommend a good instructional rock climbing book for a beginner?

Will covers the basics, classics for sure! Arno (who has been on KOTR to answer our questions) has a sequel out, Espresso Lessons. For basics on sport climbing and training, Betty and the Silver Spider is a comic book written by the late, great Craig Luebben.

Thanks everyone! I am going to order "The Freedom of The Hills" as it sounds like it might be just what I am looking for.

'Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills'- Pretty much everything you need to know about being in the mountains is in that book. Happy reading.
