(Climbers laugh surprised)
Oh Panda, climbing with a chair?
There are better ways to get up there
You want to climb with us?
OK? Let’s go?
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
(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?
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
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
(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
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
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, Panda!
Wow, I’m going in
go, go, go
You can't, Panda!
(all together) You're way too big!
