I'm looking for something that shows something that shows the whole process of sports/trad climbing to get a good picture of the flow of things, management of rope, protection, etc, from start to finish. Rich zz

I feel like this thread will go rough on you. Why not get out there and try it out? Hire a guide or something. Or is there some other reason, like showing your alien overlords what this climbing on Earth is? Colonel Mustard

It was just one guy. And it was kind of funny. Sorry you're stranded Gilligan.

Hey, I took a pretty similar approach to what you're doing when I got into trad. I'd recommend just buying a rack and getting out there (after reading as much as you can on it). There's a short section in this vid about going bottom up.

Here is a really boring but kind of funny video of me following a pitch and then leading one. It's a little dizzying and kind of long, but it's from start to finish. I'd upload a better one but it takes way too long. My buddy put this one up.

Sport Climbing 101 is a tad corny, but it has a lot of really good info. Plus, it's available on Netflix.

Thanks to all of you who posted helpful hints for Rich zz. I, too, am a beginner climber. The only difference is I can get out there and climb and have been doing so. When gyms are closed and the weather is to foul, these videos can be useful.

I am an avid whitewater kayaker and watch kayak videos endlessly.

Rich zz, not everyone here is a jerk. Please don't think that. This forum needs to stay drama free. I deal with that at work. Lol!

Happy climbs to all!

oh i was just half joking about being a jerk, but yeah. it sucks that i'm stuck for another months, otherwise i'd be out there too doing it instead of asking.
