Why are primates such good climbers?

Primates are the mammals group that includes monkey and apes.They are very good climbers because  their bodies are designed for climbing.
to begin with ,their arms are longer than their legs.These long arms allow these primates to swing from tree to tree.They have separate fingers and toes to get a good grip on branches.Their feet are also designed to clutch objects well.Some of them have tails that can be used  for grasping too.
