  1. Actually, gyms give kids something to do and let them get strong so they can resist bullies and gain enough self-respect to just say no to drugs. I've seen it happen. Kid gained 45 pounds of muscle at a local gym, and no one dared pick on him.

  2. ive been climbing for 6 months I love it!!! haha but i still need help lol and learn more techniques!! add me coz i need help lol

  3. Then they wouldn't be climbing, duh. I don't think the mother pushes Brooke but rather she helps her push herself. She very obviously loves climbing and I just think it's great she has someone close to inspire and help her.

  4. That wasn't so much a climbing reference as it was a hint to the first episode of game of thrones.

    Anyway, that girl is so amazing, I can't even believe it.

  5. First of all, Brooke looks a lot healthier than most children.
    If they didn't like it, my guess is that they wouldn't climb. Doesn't look like it's not Brooke's thing, she is pushing herself. I've seen some kids doing sports only because their parents want them to, they usuall suck at it and have no motivation to succeed. Sometimes a parent's passion becomes a child's passion too, as in Brookes case. I don't see any harm in this.

  6. scaling walls will help them because it gives them a challenge to overcome, to focus on, instead of all the other avenues available to kids growing up in the inner city. and those other avenues are what they are at risk from (drugs, alcohol, theft, etc.) i think it's a great idea.

  7. Impresive! Congrats and keep going up! but I find important the use of helmet for these videos with target kids and young people. Thanks!

  8. WRONG! My wife is a ER trama doctor and she has seen people come in with a slight bump to the skull that leaves them with brain damage. Many of them were climbers. The brain should always be protected, just like wearing a seat belt in a moving car.

  9. Kayaked lower clear creek this morning before work. Damned if I'll ever climb it though. I don't know how they do it.


  11. Anything with mass has gravity, even you. If you are wondering why you don't notice your own gravitational effect, its cos its cancelled out by the earth. The greater the mass, the great the gravitational force.

  12. cool …but I must say the parents must be retarded to let there little girl climb a rock face with out a helmet…????

  13. because if she would fall a helmet would be enough to save her life? When shes fallin a helmet wont help her much to survive the impact -.-

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

  15. That's it, I'm going to start training for the Olympics!!! O.K. not really.
    Brooke is a Rock Star with an amazing drive, Go Brooke!!!!

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Are you serious. How would they be able to do that anyway. There is a huge difference to fighting and every other sport.

  20. 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.

  21. 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

  22. 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.

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

  24. 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.
