The Kid Should See This

Watch 11-year-old rock climbing prodigy Brooke Raboutou climb

It’s no wonder that 11-year-old Brooke Raboutou loves to rock climb: Her parents are two former world champion climbers who own a rock climbing gym in Boulder, Colorado, and from very young, climbing has been a huge part of Raboutou’s daily life. From gym practice, to weekend climbs, to literally hanging around on strength training equipment in her basement, she’s put in a lot of practice and hard work.

Above, THNKR profiled her love of climbing in 2013.
