Very Basic

I’ve been climbing for over a year and I currently climb V4 and 5.11. From a written perspective, it was organized well and easy to understand. For me, however, the information presented was very basic and oriented toward someone who is considering trying climbing but has little to no experience. Someone at V0-V1 and 5.8-5.9 level of climbing may get more out of it. Because the information was so basic, it would be easy for anyone to find the same information on climbing vlogs like or without paying for it. Which is probably my main driver for rating it overall at 3 stars instead of something higher.
