    Item # 808211

    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    Loading Ratings & Reviews...

    FalconGuides How to Rock Climb! - 5th Edition is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great basic to Intermediate instruction Great instructional guide for the beginning/intermediate climber. This covers the basics of gear, body positioning, foot & hand placements, rope management, just about every aspect of rock climbing. Even advanced climbers can pick out of this book basics that have been missed/forgotten and fix bad habits. The down side of course is that to cover every topic of climbing means the author couldn't delve too deeply into the details of each topic. But there are plenty of other books that are solely dedicated to (example) gear placements. Great book, every climber should read this or something similar from time to time.
