Climbing is a pretty crazy sport. Hanging off giant drops by your just your finger tips is literally taking your life in your hands and when you do that you find that you’re capable of some truly incredible things, pulling off amazing contortions, beasty muscle ups and outright gnarly climbing moves.
Your ability to shift your body when you think there’s a good chance you may never see it again is pretty impressive, but just imagine what you can do if you’ve put in the hours of climbing training in the gym repeating the movements again and agin. There are climbers out there who pull off the most insane climbing moves every day, just for fun, and when they get going the results have to be seen to be believed.
From technical maestros to dodgy Batman impersonators these are the climbing moves that will leave you scratching your head and wondering what sort of mischief you could get up to down your local climbing wall.
Canadian rock climber Sean McColl seems to be made entirely of muscle. The way this guy can power up a wall makes it look like gravity has taken the day off. In this clip from the 2015 Canadian Bouldering finals, Sean used pretty much every part of his body to complete the fourth problem in the competition, even pausing at one point to take a quick break and do a slow motion, one arm spin just to rub in how good he is.
