Knot For Climbing

It’s a tiny Gobie, and it’s a rock climber…

A gobie attempts a 7c+

I am watching an episode of the brilliant BBC nature documentary Life and having just been mesmerised by the wonders of our gilled ancestors, the problem solving and evolutional leaps of the mudskipper, his distant cousin the Hawiian Gobie fish appears.

“It’s a tiny Gobie, and it’s a rock climber…”, speaks the wonderful David Attenborough. Well this little sucker, and he is a lil’ sucker, manages to climb up a waterfall with his mouth and fins. Incredible stuff!

Have a look at the video on the BBC website.
