ok first if you plan on taking this up as a part of yer routines, invest on shoes and a harness. if you plan to go into bouldering then i suggest you also get a crash pad

Ok in simple terms(ones I understand best) TR is where the rope is anchored in at the top of a climb. Lead climbing on the other hand is where you clip the rope thru quickdraws(2 carabiners connected w/ webbing) and sort of clip the rope into the wall as you go. There are other forms of leading, but this is easiest for me to explain. hope it helps
