As much as this is a great story, and fun to watch.. she DID get help from the safety rope, no question about it.

The point is taken though, this wall design is pretty easy to climb, for someone who wants to and puts some effort in.

I noticed that. I'm pretty sure if you had a grappling hook, you could secure a rope up under the other side of the panel and just use the rope to climb all the way up.

Then there are ladders. There's really almost type of barrier that is truly impenetrable.

By the time the parents can put in a safety rope to help their children get up there then the border patrol will already be there.

lol

Do you know why she has to use a safety rope?

Because without it she would probably fall and break a leg or something.

No getting over it then.

You'll also notice she is being pulled up...I mean an eight year old is not going to be holding onto that fence with one hand while waving at people.

This thread should be moved to the humor section.

She only had a safety rope in case she fell. She climbed the wall under her own power.

1. He didn't say it was impossible to climb.

2. That kid is super talented, really cool to see.

3. She had help in that it was a partial wall and she went straight for the lip, which wouldn't exist on most of the wall.

8-years-old, awesome

No, if you watch the video the rope is tight the entire time. She was being pulled up.

At one point she even takes a hand off and waves it around and there is no way she would have the strength to do that without a foothold. You also see her slipping multiple times with no feet grasping anything yet she never falls.

This is a complete fake video. She was completely supported and being pulled up the wall.

Not sure if you know how safety lines work but they do not remain tight. Once you attach one it stays there so if you climb 100 feet and slip then you drop 100 feet. Every time she slipped she never dropped an inch meaning it wasn't a safety line, it was a bunch of guys holding her up.
