What is sports climbing?

Climbing is a sport that involves a high amount of concentration, dedication, and physical/mental strength.

There can be considered two forms, outdoor or rock climbing, and indoor climbing done on a climbing wall. Competition climbing is usually performed on an indoor climbing wall, where the climbing space can be standardized, safety ensured and it is more spectator friendly.
