    Yup, it's definitely a sport, though rare these days. A former client of mine was a professional competitive rope climber. He is now in his 70's.

    There is almost nothing better for QUICKLY (and painfully, I couldn't pick so much as a pencil for a couple of weeks) developing upper body strength, I am convinced. Gotta love Marine Corps training...

    I love rope-climbing, and I wish I could find a gym or someplace around here where I could do it !!

    Ugh! I HATED that in junior high... couldn't do it.
    But, one of my friends has a climbing rope secured to the main beam in his great room. He can climb up to the bedroom, instead of taking the stairs. Seems a little extreme... I might hang one from a tree on my fitness trail, if I can get over the JH phobia.
