Little Ellie Farmer could rock climb even before she could walk. Watch the video here.
At 8 months old your baby typically starts to crawl and walk, but little Ellie Farmer was already a rock climbing expert at this age – she couldn’t even walk yet.
Watch the video below:
Ellie’s parents, Rachael and Zak Farmer, built a rock wall in her room when she was 2 months old. Once she started pulling herself up on things 6 months later, she used the wall to balance herself. Mom and dad eventually helped her learn to climb the wall.
This adventurous tot is now 20 months old and practices rock climbing at the gym five times a week for 30 – to 60 – minute sessions.
