- Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that is performed without the
use of ropes or harnesses.
- Top rope climbing is a style in climbing in which a rope runs from a belayer at the foot of a route through one
or more carabiners connected to an anchor system at the top of the route and back
down to the climber, usually attaching to the climber by means of a harness.
- Traditional ("Trad") climbing is a style of rock climbing in which a climber places all gear required to traverse the rock face and protect against falls, and removes it when a passage is complete.
