Part of climbing is dealing with the gear, short of soloing.

I now understand why it's sport climbers that are routinely decking and dumping their partners on the ground.

I consider myself more of a trad climber than a sport climber, and I agree with you that dealing with the gear is an essential part of TRAD climbing. Sport climbing on the other hand is about the difficulty, the moves, and pushing yourself physically without having to deal with all of the gear.



Oh, and as I all ready mentioned, try removing the draws from an extremely overhung sport climb and you might have a better idea of why they use perma-draws.

edit to add, it looks like Jay beat me to it.
