This guy and his team were going so fast on the team rope climb that I decided to take a few pictures of his insanely fast descent. Note the wrap around the back of the calf in addition to around the top of the foot. Note the position of the right foot. Near the bottom he would slam on the brakes by putting his right foot back onto the rope. I have no idea what his hands are made of.
