Not bad little buddy.... I was thinking about entering that challenge at one point.. Nice to see you animating.

I like the arm movement so far... now what you should concentrate on a bit more is

1) Bringing the legs to the rope a bit sooner to help him climb... hes a big guy and he be able to goup abit with just his arms but thye would get tired pretty quick.

2) Add a little bit more root side to side movment when he reaches his arms higher.. think about when you streach your arms you hips usally move outward a bit with the out stretched arm.

3) Once you get his movment down add some personality to the rope as he climbs....

Great start.. keep going...

I agree with Kurt. He needs to pull up his legs faster.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.
