Stanford Develops Gecko Like Pads For Climbers

Stanford is famous for enabling its students to expand their minds
To new heights of knowledge leaving others far behind
Now the news is that Stanford has developed gecko like pads to enable a person to climb
Up sheer faces of glass or rock free from gravity’s confines
Now almost anyone can be a spider man climbing to new heights
Why take the elevator or stairs when you can climb up the windows outside to enjoy the sights
Not sure what the market for this invention will be or whether purists in rock climbing will accept the pads
But no more pitons and hammers pounding away on mountain faces will make the environmentalists glad
Just the sight of a climber with gecko like pads scaling up in silence a mountain face
Wondering if the adhesive material will always remain firmly in place
