Technique Tip - Zipper Climb

This climb is a fun one as it has a similar appearance to the zipping of a zipper. It might not be the most 'elegant' of climbs, however, I've known it to be a crowd-pleaser!


The actions are the same as Spider Climb, the difference being the silks are to either side of each hip rather than having both silks to one side.


Zipper Climb is definitely all about the rhythm and moving your same hand as your foot. Doing so can take a bit of practice since we naturally move with our hands and feet in opposition to each other.
