equipment: - Scouts Canada
could u write what equipement do i need to buy to (3 different lists):
1) rock climbing in summer
2) ice climbing
I can do the first one. Though it depends on what kind of climbing you are doing, trad or sport...
Generic climbing stuff:
carabiners (always at least 2, more come in handy)
sport climbing (pre-bolted routes):
Trad climbing (un-bolted routes):
nuts/stoppers (either name. depends on the brand)
Other various and sundry bits:
slings or webbing
I'm sure there's something I've missed, but that's all I can think of at this point. What's the project?

thank u very much. i just want to begin, slowly, and i want to know what to buy.
I would say start indoors, simply because there's a little less you have to take care of, and it gives you a (half-decent) knowledge base to work from. If you're climbing indoor all you need are shoes, a harness, a belay device and a couple biners. MEC does this thing where if you buy a harness package (harness, belay device, carabiner) and shoes at the same time, you get a discount on part of it. Though you do have to go in person to do it. It's a pretty good deal on the basics, though. I'd look into it if you have a store nearby.
