8 beginner tips you NEED To know on how to start outdoor rock climbing

How to start outdoor rock climbing or looking for beginner rock climbing tips on how to start outdoor rock climbing? Then watch this rock climbing video for beginners on how what you need to know before starting outdoor rock climbing.

Rock climbing is very different from climbing indoors in a climbing gym. In this rock climbing video, I have collected my biggest tips from my own outdoor rock climbing, and I will tell you about important differences from indoor gym climbing, you need to know. Besides that, I will also introduce you to great beginners’ rock climbing destinations in Europe and share a few tips on what rock climbing gear you need bring. But watch this rock climbing video for beginners to find out!

1st beginners rock climbing tip: First of all – start with single pitch sport climbing! This resembles indoor gym climbing the most, so you can easily build up skill and outdopr rock climbing experience.

There are some differences between outdoor rock climbing and indoor gym climbing. One thing you’ll discover is that you cannot climb as hard as you do indoors. With outdoor rock climbing, climbing holds can be difficult to identify, since they all look the same! As you progress and start climbing harder outdoors, the number of climbing holds drop, and you can navigate by all the chalk marks other climbers have left behind.

Another thing is that outdoor climbing is a mental game! Taking climbing falls outdoors can be scarier because the distance between the bolts is often greater, and you will take longer falls! And this takes some experience getting used to.

2nd beginners rock climbing tip: There are many great rock climbing spots all over the world, but if you are based in Europe, I would highly recommend going to Italy, and especially Arco near the Garda Lake is fantastic place to start! There are loads of great beginners rock climbing crags and most beginners routes are really well protected with bolts every one to two meters

3rd beginners rock climbing tip: Get a hand full of maillons also called bail carabiners. If you find yourself on a route that is too tough, and you have to be lowered off, then you should place a maillon in the bolt and be lowered off that.

4th beginners rock climbing tip: Get a 60 meters climbing rope, or even a 70 meters climbing rope, with a coating that protects against dust and sand. Your rope will last significantly longer and it is definitely worth the investment.

5th beginners rock climbing tip: You should also consider getting a ropebag to store your rope in, when belaying. I own the Petzl Kliff which is a great bag with plenty room for gear, rope and a bottle of water, but actually one of those blue IKEA bags is a cheap alternative you can use as your first rope bag.

6th beginners rock climbing tip: As there are no quickdraws attached to the bolts outside you need to bring your own. For your first set of quickdraws go for something that are durable and light weight like the Petzl Spirit Express or the Black Diamond Positron. Personally,, I carry the DMM Phantom Express, which are super light weight, but I also use them for ice climbing and alpine climbing

7th beginners rock climbing tip: I like having a physical guidebook and publishers like Rockfax and Vertical Life make some excellent guidebooks! But, in these modern times you can also get apps with topography for different crags

8th beginners rock climbing tip: Get a huge roll of sport tape, so you can tape your fingers up. Making the transition from soft plastic holds in your local climbing gym to the hard granite in Chamonix or limestone of Arco is really tough on your fingers.

I hope this rock climbing tips for beginners video has helped yout out!

Jain Kim shows perfect rock climbing technique

Jain Kim shows perfect rock climbing technique in Suwon, South Korea. She demonstrates many rock climbing and bouldering techniques and makes it look effortless.

@7:45 she does a high step to avoid a high commitment move. Every other competitor went with a right foot flag on the lower hold and about %50 of them missed the move.

She tops both routes with ease. Also, she was the only one to top Womens Route B. Unfortunately I could not stay for the later rounds of the event, but she went to go on to win the event.

Jain Kim (Hangul: 김자인, born 11 September 1988) is a professional climber. She is mainly active in lead climbing and bouldering competitions. She won the Lead Climbing World Cup three times (2010, 2013, 2014), the Lead Climbing World Championship once (2014), and the Rock Master once (2010, Lead discipline).

Rock Climbing: Lead Belay

Once you’ve mastered the art of top roping, it’s time to learn how to lead belay. The difference with lead belaying is that rather than pulling slack out of the system, you need to give the leader slack as he or she climbs. In this REI Expert Advice video, we demonstrate how to get the climber to the first bolt, where to stand while you belay, how to give slack as your partner climbs and clips, and how to catch a fall.

So right now, I'm going to do some lead climbing. I'm tied in as a climber, Chaz is clipped in here is the belayer, we've already done our safety checks, I'm ready to start, and while I'm climbing, I'm going to give you five tips for how to lead climb, and how to do so effectively and efficiently.

One good tip is before you start climbing, to take some time and really try to identify the route. What I mean by that is to try to look for critical spots on the route where maybe you'll get a good rest or maybe some difficult cliffs. You'll notice another tip is that when you're clipping, you want to be doing so from a balanced position with a straight arm. Having these straight arms to make those cliffs is a great way to conserve energy.

As I move up a little farther, you'll notice my arm still stays straight clipping. I'm making that clip with a straight arm, and at this point, I'm pretty comfortable, I've good footholds, and I'm on a big jump hold, so I can shake out my arms a little bit to try to get some of that lactic acid out of there. I'll do the same with my other arm. This type of move, shaking out, can really help you to recover while you're climbing.

Another pointer is when to chalk up. So right now if I'm moving into a difficult sequence, I might want to chalk up before I go through it, so timing your chalk ups, when to do it, how often to do it, is something you want to consider.

So, on a similar note, while timing your chalking up, to make sure you're not doing it excessively, but just kind of as needed, a good idea is to try to identify a crux of the route, which is the most difficult section, or where you expect to have the most trouble, and rather than stopping in the middle to chalk up, or maybe try to make a clip from an awkward position, try to push through that crux, identify the sequence, chalk, prepare yourself, get a good rest and shake out, and move straight through that crux

Another tip would be that while I'm climbing, if I'm so scared of falling the whole time, it's going to make me over grip, which means squeezing a lot harder than I need to be, and putting a lot of weight on my arm that doesn't need to be there.

I want to keep it on my feet. So a great tip for lead climbing, is to get comfortable falling. You're going to climb a whole lot better if you're not scared to fall. It'll also make it a lot easier to commit to some of those bigger moves. So those are some tips that are really good for lead climbing to help you move efficiently and effectively.
