lead vs second grade gap 24-Jun-2011 At 1:25:51 PM ClimbingNT
I find that top roping imo requires less thought processes throughout the climb. Itís pretty much a matter of making it from move to move (which can catch you out and put you in positions where the next move is a little dubious).
Lead climbing, especially on trad requires a lot more thought process. I find you read the climb a lot more. Find places to rest and keep your head in the game throughout the entire climb.
You also climb more steady, make sure you donít get pumped too soon, rest more often, etc.
With top roping, if you get pumped its not the end of the world. You can just let go, rest, then keep on goingÖ.
