This week's Friday nighter is a great video of young American climber Brooke Raboutou. Brooke is the daughter of Didier Raboutou and Robyn Erbesfield - two champion climbers from the early 1990's.

It is no surprise that with a climbing pedigree like that Brooke has redpointed the difficult limestone sport route of Welcome To Tijuana (8c) in Rodellar, Spain at the tender age of 11!

In this video we see Brooke in action on the rock, in the family home, and we meet her parents.

Here's the video portrait of Brooke:

"11-year-old Brooke Raboutou is a rock climbing phenom who regularly breaks world records on elite bouldering and sport climbs once thought impossible for someone her age. With two former world champion climbers for parents and coaches, Brooke's pedigree is unmatched. Now she has set her sights on pushing both herself and the climbing world to even greater heights."
