The Hörst men are climbers. Father Eric is a climbing writer and coach, older brother Cameron climbs 5.14a, and the baby, Jon, is the youngest person in the world to redpoint a 5.14a. If you don't understand climbing grades, all of this basically means that the boys climb better than most monkeys of the same age. Today's video focuses on young Jon, an irreverent ball of boundless energy and enthusiasm. He started climbing at his family's home climbing wall at two and was on real rock by four. Follow him as he heads to Maple Canyon, Utah at the mature age of ten, to attempt his first FA. His chosen route name? Schooled by a Ten-Year Old. Well, at least he's not rubbing it in. This Ten-Year-Old Climbed a 5.14a | The Hörsts - A Climbing Family, Ep. 3

There are plenty of famous families around these days - The Osbornes, The Kardashians, The Brady Bunch and The Waltons are all household names but now there's a new family on the block. It's time to meet The Horsts. This is a family with one massive love for climbing and a dedication to their sport that defies belief. Father Eric is the brains and brawn behind the infamous 'Training for Climbing' guides so it's no surprise that his sons are pretty immense climbers in their own right. But just how immense can a 10 and 12 year old be? Prepare to be humbled, amazed and a little bit jealous - these little vertical dudes can climb 5.14 and have six packs to rival The Hulk! Come join them in the intensive training camp that they call 'home'.
