Puzzle - Hint

A weightless and perfectly flexible rope is hung over a weightless, frictionless pulley attached to the roof of a building.

At one end is a weight which exactly counterbalances a monkey at the other end.

If the monkey begins to climb, what will happen to the weight - will it remain stationary, will it rise or will it fall?

 [Ref: ZSXS]

Hint: Imagine where the monkey and weight would be if you'd not seen the monkey climb.
