Climbing : All The Best Free Flash Games Relating To Climbing
Mountain Climbing is the activity consisting on ascending any kind of rock faces, with the use of one' s hands and feet.
This activity goes back to thousands of years: in 218 before Christ, Hannibal crossed the Alpes with 37 elephants and 9000 men. Some hundreds of years later, the inhabitants of the Alpes and chamois hunters, climbing mountains and rocks to get about some distant places, inspired what climbing has became now.
Besides your hands and feet, the modern version of climbing has granted their disciples of a total equipment, minimizing risks of fall. The safe climber is harnessed to the mountain, thanks to a rope hooked on the rock face .
Climbers are lucky enough to have established a high number of records: Among them, the most spectacular remains the ascent of the highest peak of the world, the “Top of the World” mount Everest (8850 meters), reached in 1953 by two climbers equipped with oxygen bottles! Even more astonishing, the feats of Messnet, an Italian considered as the greatest climber of the last century. Between 1980 and 1990, he reached 14 summits of the Himalaya mountain, and kept doing expeditions in the Antarctic, where he climbed up 18 summits of more than 8000 meters, without the assistance of air-bottles!
On the 10 000 registered attempts to reach its peak between 1953 and now, only 1000 were successfully accomplished!
