 “The Little Zen Monkey”

Ellie Farmer is only 20 months old, but she is already scaling rock walls like a seasoned pro.

In a video originally posted to Ellie’s Facebook page, “The Little Zen Monkey” — which her mother, Rachael Farmer, created under the nickname she gave her daughter — the toddler is scaling a wall without a harness at the climbing gym the family frequents in their home of Flagstaff, Arizona.

According to her parents, Ellie’s knack for climbing is nothing new: Rachael climbed throughout her pregnancy with Ellie, and Ellie has been climbing before she could even walk.

“She’s really been part of the climbing community since birth,” Zak told CNN. “When she was first opening her eyes, she was at the gym, seeing climbers.”
