| A fun high school sports anime set in the world of competitive climbing
When Konomi Kasahara was in junior high school she excelled at puzzle solving; now she is in high school she joins the sports climbing club. Here she learns to use her puzzle solving abilities to find the best route up the various climbing walls. There is more to climbing that identifying the best routes; she will have to learn the necessary techniques. Over the course of the series she improves, along with the rest of the team. As they take on teams from other schools rivalries emerge but Konomi remains determined.

Having done some non-completive rock climbing many years ago I thought it would be interesting to see a sports anime centred on climbing. I rather enjoyed this. Having somebody new to the sport as the protagonist was good as it meant the viewer learns various details along with her. The climbing sequences are fun to watch and even though it is animated one can't help wondering if characters will be able to ascend their assigned routes. The characters are decent enough although some of the rivalries seem exaggerated for dramatic effect. Overall I found this to be a good sports anime; worth watching if you are a fan of the genre.

These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
