VIDEO: 10-Year-Old Spiders Up 5.14a Cliff Face
Last week we brought you the news of 10-year-old Jonathan Hörst's 5.14a climb at Kentucky's Red River Gorge. Today we bring you the video.
The baby-faced youngster makes his papa proud by scaling the 60+ foot line, known as God's Own Stone. His father is climber Eric Hörst, whose other son Cameron made the same ascent a year ago at age eleven.
While not exactly Leopold Mozart, Papa Hörst has clearly taught his little ones a thing or two about his craft and shouts encouragement from behind the camera.
The ascent makes Jonathan the youngest climber ever to send a climb of that grade.
