If you're looking for fitness, fun and a healthy dose of adrenaline, then rock climbing is for you. Though Climbing considered one of the most thrilling and risky outdoor activity. If you are thinking going out for Climbing purpose, I must tell you to check the gears and equipment first. one should be more concern about the safety and efficiency before going out.
As a beginner, you should start out doing indoor climbing, bouldering or top-rope climbing outdoors.
Lets have a glance on those essential tools that you must have before you go for climb.
Climbing Clothing: Wear clothing that is not restrictive and won't get in the way of you or the rope. Your clothing should breathe, wick sweat and dry fast so that you can stay warm and comfortable while climbing.
Climbing Shoes: I know Rock climbing and bouldering are one of the most thrilling adventures. It requires Concentration and skills as well as safety. When it comes to safety a quality climbing shoe is a must.
Climbing Helmet: A helmet should feel comfortable, fit snugly but not too tight and sit flat on your head. Helmets usually have a hard protective shell and an internal strapping system.
Climbing Harness :Unless you are bouldering, you need a climbing harness. A harness consists of two basic parts:
Carabiners : These strong, light metal rings with spring-loaded gates connect the climbing rope to pieces of climbing protection such as bolts, nuts and camming devices.
Belay Device : This is used to help the belayer control the rope. Used correctly, a belay device increases friction that helps the belayer catch a fall, lower a climber, pay the rope out gradually as the climber advances, or reel in slack smoothly. The two most common belay-device styles are tubular and assisted-braking.
Climbing Ropes : No piece of gear is more important to a climber than the rope, though again, when you're just starting out, the rope will likely be provided for you. As you progress, where and what you are climbing will determine which rope is best for you.
Climbing Protection: As a beginning climber, you won't be setting anchors or placing protection. Understanding what it is and learning how to do it, though, will make you a more well-rounded climber. You'll want to be a proficient sport climber first, and then take classes to learn the proper way to place protection.
So,I think you have already get a simple overview on those tools and a deeper knowledge on this gears is mandatory before you go on rock.

For beginners, climbing shoes are a good investment as are chalk bags and a comfortable harness. Before anything, however, I'd highly recommend taking some climbing classes so that you know how to safely climb (i.e., tie in, belay, climb, etc.).
