Rope climbing is back

Rope climbing has been the basis for physical training for schools, military and athletes for centuries. It was even at the Olympics from 1896-1932. After years of being underground, the art of rope climbing is unstoppable, resurfacing worldwide at gyms, Cross Fit boxes, obstacle courses and local competitions like in the Czech Republic.
