For anyone who has ever looked upon a wall and then decided to climb it, it’s well understood that rock climbing is no easy affair. While it’s undoubtedly a sport of much diversity in its range and membership, it goes without saying that rock climbing requires a considerable fitness in the individual to be able to do it successfully.

This is why this video is at once so inspiring and humbling. Within it we see Ellen Degeneres meet Ellie, a one year old rock climber who learned how to climb before she learned how to walk. Her proud rock climbing parents give a bit of backstory before they bust out a small rock wall for Ellie to climb, much to her delight. She’s easily the most adorable rock climber you’ll see for some time.
