Sport Climbing...

Sport Climbing is by far the most popular form of rock climbing today. Sport climbing is rock climbing on select areas of a cliff face protected by bolts attached to the rock.

Sport climbing allows the rock climber to safely climb high up on the cliff face and only carry a minimal amount of climbing gear. Sport climbers can climb outdoors without spending a lot of money on protective gear and can also enjoy climbing on many types of rock because there are bolted climbs in just about any place in the world.
