                                                By: Staff of Mountain Equipment Co-op
     Wondering how to rock climb? Well this article is an informing read and has everything you need to know from the different types of rock climbing, to the gear you need to use.
   This article starts with the different types of rock climbing, from indoor rock climbing, to climbing up icy mountains using only crampons and ice screws. It also informs you about the types of gear that you will need to start your adventure. This article informs you about the best companies for rock climbing and the easiest.
    I had no idea that there were so many different types of rock climbing and how difficult they can be. It made me think about how dangerous this sport can be and how it can result in death. I learned that when you have the proper gear with you, it can make rock climbing all the more fun and easier
    This article affected me in a way that would make me change by behavior when rock climbing. Just the smallest of mistake could lead to you falling whether it is 20 meters or 1000 meters. I know now to take my time when climbing and not to fool around or run around when there are climbers present.
