Do you need equipment?

Answer

Actually yes you do need equipment. Most importantly are climbing shoes, the reason for this is because it's important to have a decent grip on footholds. If you wear just regular shoes the probability of falling of the wall will increase. It's also recommended to use magnesium (chalk powder) especially if your hands are sweating quickly. Magnesium will absorbs water so it keeps your hands dry during climbing.
