Different type of climbing in Ireland

Rock climbing may be divided into two broad categories: free climbing and aid climbing.

Free climbing requires the climber use only natural features of the rock formation.

Aid climbing involves using artificial devices placed in the rock to support all or part of the climber's body weight, and is normally practised on rock formations that lack necessary natural features suitable for free climbing.

The most popular in Ireland is Free climbing because a lot of mountains haven't any artificial devices
