A Cat Climbing A Bouldering Gym's Climbing Wall

This is a video of Lalah the cat climbing a practice wall at a bouldering gym in Japan. I like how she takes the time to inspect the line she's taking and make sure knows where she's going. She does slip once though, but doesn't fall. Me? I tried to climb the climbing wall at the mall and the guy running it said if you make it to the top on your first try you get your money back AND $50, and I just hung on the first hand and footholds till my arms and legs hurt and I stepped back down to earth. He was in the middle of telling me it was the worst performance he's ever seen when I smacked him with a climbing shoe. Then he called mall security and I spent four hours hiding in the middle of a circular clothing rack in JC Penney's. Thank God there weren't any women shopping for overcoats.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to MSA, who once went to a climbing gym owned and operated by mountain goats. That's cool, I like them.

    He wants his cape, cane and a cognac.

  • But can the cat teach the dude to turn his phone 90 degrees before tapping the record button?

  • BMan56

    Make a goat do it next. I want to see a goat do it.

    I like the little tail wag/twitch at the end. Like it's proud of itself, or maybe it's just taunting the peasants down below.

  • WhiteEagle2

    This is oddly soothing.

  • Meh

    I have such a climbing wall next to me right now. And i have 2 cats.

    Never seen them doing this though. "Lightbulb"

  • Doog

    Record it (sideways preferably) and whether they are successful or not it'll be an internet worthy video.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I had a friend in elementary school who had two really cute cats and they used to climb the fireplace. I'd guess their living room ceiling was something like 18 feet high. The brick chimney/fireplace went from floor to ceiling and cats would get up out of reach and stare down at their world below. One of the cats climbed all the way to the roof when we were having his birthday party or whatever reason I was at his house with 5 other loud obnoxious boys.

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    this pussy totally ignored the set routes

    but seriously, heights make me nervous and I took a climbing course that involved this and belaying. just watching this video made my palms sweaty.
