Creature Climb is one of the first inverted climbs that we teach our intermediate level students, and it’s one they often use in choreography. Once students have their straddle up in the air then this climb helps them develop great crochet leg technique, which is going to help with other skills including double crucifix wrapped skills like 360 dives and stylish variations like Pillar Splits.

We teach this at the beginning of our intermediate level aerial silks classes, and then build it into more challenging variations such as CASH Climb once students have it mastered. This climb is also sometimes called Crochet Climb.
