The Mountain ClimberSituation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.
An explorer was halfway up a mountain when he slipped and lost his grip. After the slip he was mysteriously at the peak of the mountain. If he was halfway up the mountain when he slipped how could he have ended up at the top?
HintWhere do you fall up...?
AnswerIt was an underwater mountain that he was actually climbing down. Natural buoyancy made him float to the top of the mountain.
