So I invited this guy climbing with me a couple times since he said he wanted to go and we had a ton of fun last time, I'm sure he knows I like him now--we were being flirty and playful, we got ice cream after. The thing is I don't want to keep inviting him because I want him to make a move. I went climbing a lot with my other friends and I have tendonitis so I think I'll tell the guy I can't climb this week--since he will know I'm not climbing or anything that day, do you think he will ask me out and take me out to dinner or something instead? How should I phrase it? like "hey, I think I need to let my arm heal after climbing a lot over the weekend. Wish I could climb with you tomorrow but I don't think I will be able to." Or will he just be like "I'll catch you next time"... help me hahah I'm 20, he's 22

He should get the hint unless he's clueless or being extra careful. If he likes you he should ask you out if he wants to see you, you've definitely given him enough signs now.. However just in case you could offer to do something else with him as well when you tell him you can't go climbing this week. There is a chance that he might think you just want to be climbing buddies and therefore won't make a move... So if you give him the option of doing something else that will show him that it's more about him than just the activity. He'd have to realize you like him if you do that.
Do you think he's shy? Some shy guys will literally wait for a girl to do everything. Either way, if he agrees to go out with you I'm sure he's interested, it might just take a little time before he gets the confidence to start making moves.0

No, that is vague as hell. You should be more straight-forward and tell him that you would be interested in hanging out with him instead.0
