Game description

Climbing up and down a ladder, standing straight on the ground is fairly easy. The game becomes somewhat more difficult if the ladder is slanted and dangles at the same time. This competition is a lot of fun for all contestants. The team leader puts the ladder at an angle and secures it at the bottom. The upper end has to be secured as well using two ropes. Climbing up and down the ladder is not only difficult because of the new perspective but also because the ladder slightly sways with every movement. The participants can climb the ladder just for the fun of it or as a contest. The objective there would be, who is the fastest up and down the ladder.


The winner is the fastest player.
