Mini Cliffhanger: Our 2-year-old Started Climbing Before Walking

FEARLESS Ellie Farmer proves age is nothing but a number as she scales walls as high as 30ft - despite being only TWO years old. The talented tot, from Flagstaff, Arizona, regularly climbs at the gym with her parents without the use of a harness or safety ropes - and even has a climbing wall in her own room. Dubbed the ‘little zen monkey’ by parents Zak and Rachael, Ellie began climbing before she could walk - frequently escaping from her crib as a baby. Mum Rachael and dad Zak decided to film one of Ellie’s climbs just to show it to friends and family - however the footage made the fearless toddler an overnight Internet sensation and even landed her a chance to show off her skills on the Ellen show in the States.

To see more of Ellie’s incredible climbing exploits visit Little Zen Monkey.
