Sport climbers - why don't you climb trad? 6-Feb-2013 At 5:58:46 PM mattbrooks
Dont understand this one at all. Isnt climbing all about doing what you enjoy. I have climbed, boulders, sport, trad, all at varying difficulties and its part of what I love about the sport. I was lucky enough to be schooled by some very old school climbers.

I once got called a sport climber by some misinformed twit. I promptly informed him that I had climbed trad just as hard as I had sport at that time (30), and some f in hard scary shit in the uk also. Thats what I was into at the time - E7/8 trad nightmares, placing the gear. Now its what ever I feel like on the day or is convenient, that includes trad. Love it all!
