Simone Biles has conquered the balance beam, floor exercise and vault. On Tuesday, she mastered a rope climb exponentially taller than her 4 feet, 9 inches.

Biles ascended the incredibly tall rope on a beach with ease, so confident that somebody filmed her doing so in Santa Monica, Calif.

The three-time reigning World all-around champion is next scheduled to compete at the Pacific Rim Championships in Everett, Wash., from April 8-10.

Meanwhile, her World Championships teammates Gabby Douglas and Maggie Nichols headline the AT&T American Cup in Newark, N.J., on Saturday (1-3 p.m. ET, NBC and NBC Sports Live Extra).

NBC Olympics producer Seth Rubinroit contributed to this report.
