Lead - vb/n. to climb starting with the rope on the ground clipping into protection points on the way up.

Basically the rope is in a big pile on the ground and when you lead climb (sport leading) you clip your biners into the wall then clip your rope into the biners. if you are above your last clip then you fall down past it.

Anyone else feel like going into more detail?

If there's a rope, then there's a belayer, even if you're rope-soloing (self-belay device), or gym climbing on an auto-belay device.
