I just watched the most fascinating sport. Speed Climbing. Speed Climbing is a very specialized rock climbing discipline where competitors race up a pre-set 35 foot, 90 degree vertical route (same every time) as quickly as possible. The winners do this in about 6 seconds check out this video.
I’ve never seen anything like it. They run up this wall as quickly as they would go across a flat surface. I’m pretty into rock climbing and know some folks whom I would say are pretty quick on the wall… but nothing like this.
It did make me think that it would make pretty good entertainment to see if the other ‘professional’ climbers – monkeys, cats, squirrels – could compete.
