This appears to be Hugh Herr, who gave a speech at TED on the topic of prosthetics.

Hahaha, for some reason I read the title as `Man with pathetic legs climbs rock wall`. I was like "That`s not very nice.." Oh, lack of sleep, how you entertain me.

He`s probably like 3 feet off the ground.

As a rock climber, I cannot imagine how much more difficult it must be to climb like this...

To the people saying it gives him an advantage, you have obviously never climbed before. Firstly, he has no muscle below the knee with which to push from. Secondly, he can`t feel his feet on the rock, he would have no idea whether his feet were about to slip off a hold. Thirdly, it would make a number of climbing moves near on impossible...

He has the advantage. His feet were made for this.
