Video: Types of Climbing Explained
“What is sport climbing compared to top roping. Is it even a sport?”
This video is aimed at the beginner climbers out there. If you already know all of this, hopefully I entertained you with my amazing drawing skills. Today, I briefly go over the 4 main types of climbing:
- Top Roping
- Sport Climbing
- Trad Climbing
There are other types of climbing (Aid, Mixed, Ice, Alpine) but they are not as common. Since this video is is for the newbies out there, we’ll stick with the above 4.
If you are new, did this video help explain the different types of climbing? Let me know if you have any questions.
