I am comfortable falling on toprope and leading sport climbs (after the second or third bolt) but have started leading trad and am not comfortable falling on trad gear. Any suggestions for feeling a bit better about this? My local gym has the ability to place trad gear so I thought I could get toproped and with a second rope, place a cam. I could then fall on the cam with the toprope acting as backup in case something happened. Do cams have a number of falls rating like ropes? Any other ideas?
