What is climbing all about anyways?

Is climbing indoors like climbing outdoors?
There are many similarities between climbing in the gym and climbing at the crag outdoors. Climbing indoors gives you the opportunity to advance your skills in a safe and controlled environment. Many outdoor climbers take advantage of the gym during the winter months to stay in shape. The movement, hand grips and body positions are the same as on real rock. The only things missing are the bad weather and rocks falling on your head.
