I've found these videos to be helpful. Not comprehensive. Not a replacement for climbing with more experienced partners. And not always what everyone considers best practices. But they are a good demonstration of how simple climbing should/can be.

Feel free to add more links to instructional videos to this thread! Stay safe out there!

The Art of Leading is just about the only video anyone should ever need. Make sure to crack some beers while you’re at it.

This series was really helpful for me when I first started out and is one of the best instructional videos I’ve seen.  The flagging and drop knee ones are especially good, excellent explanations about how/why you would want to do this.

Adding to Ted Pinson's suggestion, here is the full playlist for Neil Gresham's Climbing Masterclass part 1 and 2. I just finished both series. Good stuff.

Mani the Monkey has some good videos as well (links to his various playlists.)

Thanks, Nate - that’s what I meant to link.  Also seconded Mani.
