    I am truly awed- but her feet and hands will be a mess by her 40`s I reckon.

    As impressive as the kid is- and she IS impressive, are the complementing attitudes of her parents. Positive and encouraging, without being rabid.

    @ CaptKangaroo: I agree 100%. The parents look to be doing an AWESOME job.

    Naz14, ditto haha. I used to be like this, especially in martial arts. By 24 I feel like life has kicked the stuffing out of me :(

    I`m impressed, but honestly curious what will happen to her when her body changes and weight redistributes. Have there been kid phenoms who went on to be great adult climbers, male or female?

    So now we are telling our kids they are special because they can climb rocks? Let that sink in a bit. I`m here all day.

    Go ahead cynicalgamer- just make a will before you try it. I was crap at that age- and still rely on my sister to get me above about thirty foot. My sister- who at 45 has been an instructor for a decade is the best climber in the family as she is small and light- and loves it- was never anywhere like this good. It is like dancing- balance and forethought..

    Well said, Madduck. If it was "just rock climbing" and so damn easy, you`d be seeing me in that video. The girl has crazy skills and deserves at least a little recognition for it.
    How many world records have you broken (by age 11, no less) CynicalGamer?
