Watch more with these video collections:

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.

In the archives, photographer and mountain climber Jimmy Chin on assignment for National Geographic and Concurs de Castells, a jaw-dropping human tower-building competition in Tarragona, Spain.
