The event consisted of climbing a 10-meter rope with the athletes being timed. The winner was based on who recorded the fastest time in climbing the rope. Béla Erődi and Konstantinos Kozanitas, who tied for second with 13 and 4/5ths second. Erődi was awarded second over Kozanitas because while climbing, Kozanitas had touched the pole from which the rope hung.
