I like the competition in sport, it is amasing to see when people push there limit.
Trad is for the other group of people who like the chalenge and peacefull time in the mountain.
Respectfully, I disagree with this oversimplification. I'm a sport climber. I climb with sport climbers. And I relish the early season, when I have the whole mountain to myself. It's more about enjoying the outside, the beauty, and good attitudes from good people. It's not about competition for me, nor for the people I call my friends.
Last time I went to Rumney, I climbed an easy-ish route, froze my hands, couldn't hear my belayer because of the wind, bled all over the holds (sorry everyone), and topped out having fought a hard-won battle with a route that gives me a run for my money every time. IT WAS GREAT. Then we moved uphill and my partner climbed on his 5.14a project for an hour or so, which is a challenging route for him to climb.
Sport climbing allows us both, being of wildly mismatched climbing ability, to enjoy a bluebird, solitary day in the mountains without one of us dropping bricks right off the belay. It has nothing to do with competition. In fact, I'm pretty sure I've never been called "half the climber" someone else might be, though by the grades I might be.
Make the rounds at Rumney on a locals-heavy day, and I think anyone will find that they're more likely to be judged for their attitude than for the grades they climb or their level of experience. Nobody wants to climb with a jerk, a know-it-all, or an overly competitive person.
It'd be less that you climb a certain grade, climb sport vs. trad, or have a certain level of knowledge. It'd be more about the fact that you care overly much about grading, grading systems, whether it's really trad or sport, or about how much experience some beginner does or doesn't have. Nobody likes to debate this stuff ad nauseum (except NEClimbs users, apparently).
