The rope climb is one of the many difficult skills in CrossFit. However, in my opinion, it’s a skill that with just a little bit of time and effort can be mastered relatively quickly (like the double under). Today we’ll take a good fifteen minutes and work on improving our efficiency and/or learning this new skill. If you feel like you’re proficient use this time to get in some strict L sit rope climb work in addition to improving efficiency.
