Unlikely.

It's likely that you will be physicially get up the route. But, that's only a small part of climbing.

Do you know how to safely set up a top rope?
Do you know how to belay?
Do you have the equipment to set up a top rope? (rope, biners, cordalette/webbing)?
Do you have a partner who know's how to belay?
Do you know how to find the routes?


You would be much better off meeting some people at the rock gym and joining them on an outing. Let experienced climbers guide you through the learning process.

Having mentored the merit badge in the past, I can say that you could easily cover all the climbs, belays and knot work.
