|Tools for this tag|
The tag sport=climbing marks elements and the general location to represent natural climbing sites ( climbing areas, sectors, crags, frozen waterfalls, etc.) or artificial climbs (climbing walls, indoor climbing halls, etc.).
Mapping of particular routes as well as many other details (grade, bolting, route length etc.) is described in the article climbing. Meta data like amount of routes, grades, links to operators/topos etc. are considered to enable a wide range of use of the data, e.g. a search for rocks matching user defined criteria.
|For JOSM an according extension of the preset is suggested in ticket 16525. Until this is included in released JOSM versions, the preset attached to the ticket can be saved locally and be imported manually into JOSM.|
sport=climbing should be preferably applied to nodes for artificial climbing walls and on ways in conjunction with natural=cliff or areas for climbing halls with building=yes. The scheme also applies to boulders attached to bedrock natural=rock and free standing boulders natural=stone.

The most important, basic tags to describe a climbing site:
|Tag = Value||Description|
|sport=climbing||Climbing is possible here.|
|name=*||Name of the crag/climbing hall/boulder, if applicable.|
In combination with building=yes or similar it is indoors, otherwise outdoors, for example on a playground.
