Originally introduced by West Coast Products back in week 3, the “Climb By Yeet,” A.K.A ramped climb, or jump climb, quickly became an online sensation. Their fast, simple, and effective climb was widely viewed as the only practical way to climb to level 2, as discussed in “The Level 2 Trap”
However, despite wide hype, the Climb by Yeet (CBY) was and is largely absent from match play. Twitch chats often go wild when a team attempts it, as if it is a novel concept.
My team does CBY and we often find that teams go crazy when we attempt it. I personally find it one of the most exiting things that can happen in comp. Sure, level 3 climb is fun, but it’s predictable. CBY can be done at any moment and often results in buzzer beater finishes.
So today I ask the CD community to help put together a list of the greatest Climb by Yeets. Have a buzzer beater? Post it. Have a game winner? Add that! What’s your team’s special formula to get it to work? Lets talk about it!
I will kick it off with my own team:

We are rocking a 6 NEO, Ball Shifting, 8 AM Smooth Grip, Tank Drive set up that turned out to be particularly well suited for CBY by due to having the majority of our weight in the back half of the robot.
