I recently received the mammut ophir slide 3 harness as a gift. I was wondering what I need to start lead climbing in the gym. Ive got a chalk bag, an atc belay device, climbing tape, and a couple of screw lock carabiners as well as the cheaper biners for hooking on a chalk bag etc. Any help is really appreciated, thanks.

I would talk to your local gym before asking online.

Looks to me like all your lists needs are shoes and a lead rope of adequate length for the gym. That's for my gym.

Your gym may provide lead ropes, and/or assume you bring the quick draws, and/or perhaps expect some personal gear for anchoring.
