Yup, start jogging. Cardio does a lot more for burning fat than climbing. Climbing does very little.

That depends how you climb! I do a hell of a lot of cardio exercise on the big walls.
Maybe your sort of climbing doesn't burn calories. Mine does :)

To the op. I think part of your problem is, being over weight makes you a slower climber. You need to get out of your comfort zone.
Start pushing that body of yours beyond the pain barrier. If climbing is what you enjoy the most then learn how to do climbing drills. This will be hugely beneficial to not only your climbing ability and your level of fitness but your weight loss too.
Get yourself a sports heart monitor and learn how to use it.
