ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO, 2-year-old Zen Shimane from Japan was watching his parents boulder in a gym and decided to give it a go for himself. He has since taken quite a liking to the sport and his skills keep getting better by the day. While his parents are concerned that so much climbing may be harmful to his growth, for now they are trying to not stand in the way of him and something he obviously loves to do.

If Zen chooses to stick with it, we definitely can’t wait to see what he’s capable of on a wall a few years from now!
