Definitions for "SPORT CLIMBING"
competitive climbing
Rock climbing using pre-placed protection such as bolts or a top rope. Frequently involves difficult, gymnastic moves. Opposite of traditional climbing.
Climbing routes that often require significant gymnastic and athletic ability, but that do not require extensive training in the placement of protection. Sport routes ususally have closely spaced bolts that a leader may clip so that she can concentrate on completing the difficult moves rather than securing herself against a potential fall. Anathema to trads, sport climbing is the domain of the rads.
