Zombies can climb cliffsides and similar structures

But only slowly and clumsily.

It occurs to me that how long a zombie will take to decompose probably has a lot to do with how active they are, and how much new "material" they can absorb by eating the living.

Similarly, wouldn't their hearing have a lot to do with how decomposed the tissues of their ears have become? And climbing would be hampered by fingers falling off.

Of course, I answered as if I were talking about a zombie recently made from an average adult.

By forcing us to say either Zombies travel in herds or don't is absurd - as I see it, no matter what, they are only concerned about one thing: Eating your fucking brains.

They can travel in herds or alone, just as long as they eat you is fine with them.

It is more of a trick question in its current wording, but there is a popular misconception that they exhibit traits of teamwork or cooperation that are coincidental in their goal of eating your fucking brains.

Again, I'm working off of the book.
