I'm ashamed to admit that I didn't realize how dirty this swing was until my wife asked me to clean it. It's not painted green, that's just years of gunk.

This question has already been asked on ELI5 multiple times. **EDIT**: Because people are asking (and getting rather abusive in comments *and* in private messages): Not only is this question asked every time a goat video or image makes it to the front page, but [this was asked a mere 6 hours before OP posted this](https://www.reddit.com/r/explainlikeimfive/comments/6zrms5/eli5_how_do_goats_climb_vertical_surfaces_and_not/). It was, in fact, posted many times within that timeframe. I removed three or four reposts myself, but left that one up. --- *Please refer to our [detailed rules](http://www.reddit.com/r/explainlikeimfive/about/rules)*.
2059 -0_-0-_0- Great balance and precise movements. Not unlike how it's kind of miraculous that humans are bipedal. Walking on 2 feet on uneven terrain and up stairs is pretty impressive too.
102 texasrigger On top of every one else's mostly correct responses - Practice! Goats climb on and jump off of everything they can from birth. They have a real urge to get up on stuff and as babies they are terrible at it with lots of tumbles but they get better and better with time. r/goatparkour
243 confusdwaffle [because they crave that mineral. ](https://m.imgur.com/t/mineral/uwt3i6c) On a more serious note, they have hooves that have evolved to be able to climb these almost straight surfaces and I'd assume a lot more muscles than we do as humans. Also probably a combination of speed + muscles + agility --> climbing up mountains Edit: "designed" -> evolved
583 TBNecksnapper Because it's indeed only seemingly completely straight, a different angle: https://imgur.com/a/5g2zX That picture is probably cut in that strange way only to hide what reveals it's not a vertical wall.
140 Gnonthgol To start with their hoofs are very sharp and their legs are thin. So even if there is a slippery piece of rock sticking half an inch out from the cliff they can put their weight on it without slipping. They also have a lot of balance and control over their movements so they can balance on those narrow ledges. And of course it does help to have four legs. So just like a rock climber can climb seemingly straight smooth surfaces a goat can use a lot of the exact same footholds to climb up.
67 rhaegar_tldragon How often do goats fall to their deaths when climbing up weird and vertical walls and cliff faces?
19 FakeAccount84 Rigid, hard-rubber style hooves, and a lot of free food for scavengers at the bottoms of cliffs.
43 eyes_like_thunder Goat hooves have a more rubbery texture than horse or cow etc hooves. They have grippy toes.. Plus, they're super agile/adventurous. Goats get themselves in all kinds of weird places.
17 Communalbuttplug The have weird hoofs it's like a horses on the outside but a dogs soft in the middle giving them lots of grip.
