Gentleman’s Guide: How to climb like a marine

 

If you part-time as a crime-stopping superhero, you’ll be needing these six steps to climbing up a rope like a marine.

  1. Start with the rope between your legs, then wrap it around the outside of one knee/calf and back between the insteps of your boots.

  2. With the rope clamped between your feet, your boots will act like a brake and you should be able to support yourself in this position without using your hands and arms.

  3. Begin climbing up the rope by reaching up with your hands to grab the rope in a firm grip.

  4. Taking your weight in your arms, bend your legs and loosen the brake so you can slide your feet up the rope.

  5. Then clamp the rope between your instep again and straighten your legs, sliding your whole body up the rope.

  6. Repeat steps three to six until you reach the top.
