anyone that frequents a local climbing gym can tell you that children are incredible climbers and that it comes easy to them. Will she continue climbing when she hits puberty and gains weight without strength and suddenly can't climb routes that used to be easy for her. I've seen quite a few child climbers quit as soon as it gets difficult.

Climbing isnt that hard. The way to success is dont be afraid of heights or falling if you think you fall, you will fall.

Brook is a great climber with heart, she has a great view of climbing. I think that climbing is amazing as long as your having fun. When the brother tossed the gri-gri down like a coal miner tossing his pick down on the ground, it did not look like he was having fun. If you have passion for climbing you may also have a passion for other things. I love the husbands expressions.

Of course these kids are talented they started learning their talents at such young ages and most of their parents are already involved in the sports andcan afford the equipment and lessons

This girl's going to the top, we will hear her name for while. She just made me realize that as much as I would like to think that I'm a good climber I really suck at the sport.

I think climbing competitions should be divided up by weight these days. Kind of like ufc, the weight of the climber (or lack there of) is a huge advantage.

I am so inspired by her! She is awesome!

Yeah, I thought I was improving at climbing... Oh well...

Wow, I'd say she has competition with ashima shiraishi, both very young, same age and really talented.

She's quite a talent, the string of dynos at 3:03 are outstanding!

I have taken a lead fall and smashed my head into the rock. Helmet saved me. There are also instances in which a deck, or fall to the ground, was not fatal because of a helmet.

TRY OUT FOR NINJA WARRIOR NOW!!! DOESNT MATTER WHO JUST DO IT!!!

This girl is about my age and I can just imagine her as a mountain lion, roar! 🐆

On you go then, do a lot of practice and let's see if you can ;)

4 years ago

I think with enough practice and exercise it shouldn't be hard for a child since perhaps her less weight helps her to do it easily. I don't really know. Just making an assumption

4 years ago

Yet she was 6th at Nationals.

4 years ago

Anybody could do this with lots of practice

4 years ago

Anything can happen, such as rocks falling. Wearing a helmet isn't necessarily about falling off the wall.

4 years ago

this would be me if i had money

I wonder how many pull ups she can do in a row. Probably a lot.
