Video games, especially puzzle games, were always at the center of Konomi Kasahara's life. However, upon entering Hanamiya High School, she decides to break away from this lifestyle. As Konomi wanders the halls in search of a new activity to engage herself in, she stumbles upon a gigantic wall owned by the school's rock climbing team. Fascinated, she attempts to scale the wall, discovering that she can use her puzzle-solving skills to help her reach the top.

Certain that she has found her calling, Konomi immediately joins the club. As she strives to improve her climbing skills, Konomi, alongside the rest of the Hanamiya Climbing Team, will learn what it truly means to be a "sports climber" and work to achieve victory in the upcoming competitions.

It's pretty common for sports anime to take a few episodes to get into gear. Since the protagonist is usually a novice, albeit one with some special skill that gives them a natural advantage, they usually need to get some training in a sport's fundamentals under their belt before we see much action. While not veering much from that formula, Iwakakeru does get off to a surprisingly brisk start. Novice Konomi is taught the basics and engages in a climbing showdown against a rival in the first episode. That said, it's probably also the show's weakest episode, so I'd recommend not deciding whether to continue ...

Mixed Feelings
I had high hopes for this series, but it really just barely met my lowest expectations. As a recent entry in the CGdCT/sports genre, there is plenty of material out there to compare this project to, mostly to it's detriment.

The biggest source of disapointment, after watching the 12 episode run, is realizing how little actual creative thought was put into this show when the premise had such amazing potential. The story runs the typical sports show formula without variation, twists, disruption or contradiction. The character archs are as interesting as a Nebraska Interstate. The art was the best point, ...

It's pretty good to bring up the rock climbing as a theme which is also rising in popularity nowadays. This anime also quite able to introduce what rock climbing is. Where the key is like playing puzzles and also training muscles.

This anime contains waifu only, just a normal design. Maybe for those of you who like those fetishies should watch the anime. I quite enjoyed the introduction to the sport itself. But for the story as usual it's like any other sports anime. The characters are also familiar in sports anime, some are sneaky, opulent, arrogant, blablabla. Comedy? I don't feel like it or ...
