There's a DVD that most here will hate on by Chris Lindner called Sport Climbing 101 - really informative from techniques of those 'in-the-know' - however you should already be an expert in what techniques are safe and which are not, because some things he does are a bit... well... not BSA-approved.

Sport climbing, bouldering, trad, alpine, ice, it's all climbing it is all good! If someone wants to talk about any kind of climbing it doesn't matter what my opinion is, it is weak to hate on it :) let others enjoy it!

Isn't "sport climbing is neither" a circa 1984 Vermism?

Cragman, don't you have a dinky little sport climbing... sorry, TRing... set up in your living room? Is sport climbing is neither, what is TR's in your living room?

It's just that term....'sport climbing'.....seems so nonsensical to me.

We've always just called that stuff...."craggin".

I learned to climb via sport climbing.

Nothing wrong with it.

I see... definitely don't want to start differentiating between different aspects of the "same" activity. It would be as silly as differentiating between jogging around the block and running a marathon... it's all just running. I'll be back, I'm going to RUN get another cup of coffee.

People I don't have enough money to buy 300$ worth of cams 80$ worth of nuts etc. I do have enough to buy 10ish quick draws, and yes I do want to learn how to trad climb too, but for now i'm asking about sport climbing so please just answer the question without starting a fight.

Sorry Reed it always ends with tears.

EDIT: If you want to pick up climbing chicks you will at least need some nuts.
