There is no universal weight limit for rock climbing. However, the strength-to-weight ratio does play a significant role in climbing performance. Generally, climbers with lower body weight can have an advantage, particularly in activities that require a lot of pulling and hanging on small holds.

That being said, people of various weights and body types can participate in rock climbing. Climbing gyms and outdoor climbing areas typically accommodate climbers of different sizes. It's important to focus on developing strength, technique, and flexibility regardless of your weight.

It's also worth noting that climbing equipment, such as harnesses, ropes, and anchors, have weight limits specified by the manufacturers. It is crucial to use gear that is appropriate for your weight and to follow the manufacturer's guidelines to ensure safety.
