The Ultimate List of Funny Climbing Short Videos!

Love climbing? Got some time to spare? Need some quick laughs?

This is the ultimate list of funny climbing short films and video clips!

To qualify, the shorts had to be under 10 minutes long and be of sufficient quality. That means some thought to direction, editing and production was applied.
