Hi, my name is Kimie, I started climbing ten years ago in Extracurricular Sports It’s an amazing sport! To hang out with your friends, with Nature, all super cool vibe and, at the moment I’m already part of the National Team, Come on climb, it’s amazing! Before we climb Panda, all we have left to do is showing the gear I have my harness on, you have yours Let’s take a dynamic rope. Ah, you want to see it? A Grigri. It opens like this, check it out, here, and then, close it I’m going to keep it, ok? Let’s also use the quickdraws to put them on the route, ok? Also goes to the equipment loops Chalk, which is the white powder to keep us from sweating (Panda sneezes) (Laughs) Sorry, Panda And to finish up, the climbing shoes You have yours, I’m going to put mine on Let’s go Panda, Are you ready to climb? Come on! There are several types of climbing We do Sport climbing which has two types: On “Lead” we climb on higher routes And it’s very important to have stamina We use ropes and, we use quickdraws Which are those carabiners you see being placed on the route And we need to know a clipping technique. which is, passing the rope through the quickdraws. What you are watching is called “Lead climbing” In bouldering, routes are called boulders And usually aren’t more than three meters high. We need to be stronger since fewer movements are done we only use climbing shoes and a chalk back over the waist Steady feet and look for some holds for your hands Come on, go Panda, that’s it! “Venga ai”Panda, push it, go Panda Come here, Panda We can also do indoor climbing meaning it’s inside a facility And we call it climbing gym There, routes aren’t made of stone they’re made of fiber glass or wood boards The holds, where we put the hands have different sizes and types and, even funny names: For instance, pocket holds or crimps It’s the best place to go when we have to study or work Sometimes it’s not easy to go rock climbing Some people don’t believe I climb but I’m going to be a great champion Hi, My name is Ana Marisa, I’m 25 years old and I started climbing 7 years ago And now I teach climbing to children Come on climbing! On children’s sessions, we do very basic exercises We use big and colorful holds, on vertical routes Then, we move to rope routes, To try climbing in height enjoy new sensations Here, everyone uses a helmet and pay special attention to security All gear is checked So that they can climb at ease (sound of descending rope) (everyone talking) Panda Nice, you’re here We have been waiting for you Look, shall we climb this route? Come with us Oh Panda, that’s cheating… (hesitates) Ok, go, go on Go Come on (everyone cheering) Panda, Panda…. People say Sport Climbing is an individual sport But, I don’t agree I think it’s a team work deal I strongly rely on who helps me (Scream) Sometimes you fall but, I always have a good belay so, I never stop enjoying Sport climbing is awesome (screams) Way cool! Meh, I’m so tired So tired! I’d give anything for a tent… (yearns) …a tent… What’s up Panda? (Sound of Panda having an idea) (Noise to wake them up) A tent! A tent, Panda!
