Not only did Rock Climbing gain increasing popularity throughout the world, but with it came a lot of variations as well. The two main branches would be TRADITIONAL ROCK CLIMBING and SPORT CLIMBING. There are tons of other variations as well.
Most ROCK CLIMBERS practice the sport for personal satisfaction, taken as a challenge, just to see that they can overcome it.
