Watch King Charles III at Climbing Wall in 2012

Canada's new King toured a climbing facility a decade ago - here's the footage

Other Climbing Kings

Belgium’s King Albert I climbed some of the hardest routes in the Alps and died in a rope solo accident cragging in the Ardennes in 1934. Charles won’t have time to seriously challenge the Belgian royals’ climbing majesty, but now that he’s king, maybe he could install a woody at Buckingham Palace and work on keeping his centre of balance lower.
