Reading books is fine to get acquainted with concepts. But ya can't take them books out to the real world of climbing.

What is the basic essential gear I would need for top roping?
For lead climbing?
How many different types of protection should I start with?
I see a lot of gear on EBay but have no idea about its value. What can I expect to pay for some of this stuff new or used?
I have "Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills" but it doesn't answer all my questions.

One doesn't tie knots in the climbing rope. Accessory cord is used instead. Of course, some of it is as thick as the climbing rope.
