First, did you realize I'm a 9 year old?

This is quite a "step-up" from my usual walking you see.

Guys, see this. We only have 100 more steps left!

I'm really excited! So let's go.

Oh, did I mention I'm doing this climb barefoot?

I made a mistake of climbing too fast in the beginning,

and so I had to slow down in the second half.

But I think I will pull through.

And oh, if you noticed I noticed I took

a little bit too much time feeding the deers.

(Bright percussion)
