OK thanks for all the input guys,
I'll try to answer everything,
It would ONLY be indoor Sport Leading, and eventually outdoor Sport, I dont see myself ever doing trad...not confident enough....well, not yet atleast.
Also I feel pretty comfortable Lead belaying, Ive been outdoor climbing 5 times, all weekend lengths usually at the Red, some at the New. Always have went with experienced others and they had entrusted me to Lead belay, def. was nerve racking the first time! But it wasnt something I hadnt practiced before-hand.
Im in no rush to go climbing outdoors with others less experienced, so I will just take it day by day...Its def. my goal to eventually go, but I wont be negligent and do so prematurely.
I think I will take the Lead class in a couple of weeks (at the climbing gym here in Dayton), I want to feel confident enough before hand so I think im going to continue to top rope, and pay extreme attention to my stamina and hand placement at this point, try not to make any unnecassary moves.
Any other advice is extremely welcomed!
