Movie: The long climb

This is, by our standards, a long movie, but you'll have to give the little guy a break: what he accomplishes here is the equivalent of you climbing Machu Picchu, which is to say possible, but certainly not quick. Above all, both feats require more than your average amount of persistence. But of course persistence is one of his strong points.

This was the second or third time he climbed the stairs. The first time he tried he fell down after getting up only two stairs and then decided to go do something else. The second time he succeeded, and every time thereafter, however on his most recent ascent he fell again, rolling several stairs (quite slowly, but not able to stop himself) before I blocked him from falling further. This really gave him pause for thought, but it did not stop him from completing the climb.
