There are various types of Rock Climbing like Bouldering, Sports Climbing and Trad Climbing. 1. Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that is performed without the use of ropes or harnesses usually up to a height of 15 or 20 ft. While it can be done without any equipment whatsoever, most climbers use climbing shoes to help secure footholds, chalk to keep their hands dry, and bouldering mats to prevent injuries from falls. Bouldering is also the latest sport to be recommended for inclusion in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. 2. Sports Climbing is a form of rock climbing that relies on permanent anchors made or bolts fixed on to the rocks. 3. Rappelling or Abseiling is a controlled descent on a vertical face of a rock/mountain using a rope. It is usually done after summiting a vertical rock that has no other route of exit. Apart from the technical skills to climb rocks, a major part of rock climbing also involves various other important skills on setting up anchors for Sports Climb, techniques to spot the climber for Bouldering, the usage of specialized climbing gear for trad climbing and most importantly the Rope and Knot work that is involved in all these forms.
