Pratchett, Terry
Teppic, a king's son, decides to attend Assassin school. That's the first part of the book. I wasn't thoroughly enchanted with the story, but there were some good parts. I wish my eyes didn't get tired of read paperback-size books.

The author has Teppic using crampons to climb walls. I've seen this discussed about another author, and someone on a forum said they looked in the OED to find that crampon was an archaic word for a sort of piton. Maybe. I think Prachett should have gone with piton.
