By the juxtaposition of age and the image of a mountain in the central rock-climbing motif. The speaker, we would assume as a rock climber, is an adult. However, only a baby would be small enough to climb an adult. It is humorous for the reader to imagine an adult 'climbing' a senior, and conversely a baby climbing a mountain.
