When it comes to climbing outdoors there are several different options you can take. You can choose to enjoy bouldering or you can go for something that requires a little more skill like free solo climbing or ice climbing. Understanding the different types of climbing activities out there can help you to find which one really fits your niche and gives you a sport that you can really enjoy. Before you just go out and start climbing it is important to take professional lessons and to really perfect your skills. Here are some of the different types of climbing:

  • Conventional rock climbing – this is where you have a nice rope, harness, and you often scale up a large rock face with the assistance of other climbers and having a person to belay and to provide you with safety. This is a great way to climb and it is a lot of fun. Most people will learn how to start climbing this way indoors before they move onto outdoor climbing where it gets to be a bit tricky. Sport rock climbing also falls under this category as you have people that leave certain gear attached to the rock so you do not need to bring it with you.
  • Bouldering – many people enjoy bouldering when they are out hiking and enjoying the wilderness. Bouldering us where you will find very large boulders and you will climb up about 10 feet on the boulder. Usually you will not have any protective gear except a mat if you fall.

Ice climbing – this is also very popular but it tends to be very dangerous if you don’t take proper safety precautions. You need to use special equipment and climb up frozen waterfalls and glaciers. It helps to climb with a team of experts to ensure you will be safe and protected.
