Although it appears as if the ant will never reach the end of the rope, counterintuitively it is possible for the ant to reach the other side mathematically. But this will take more than the life of the universe to accomplish which is estimated at 4×10^17 seconds.
The ant will need (e (100/1) - 1 ) seconds ie., 2.688 × 10^43 seconds to reach the other side.

I'm small as an ant, as big as a whale. I'll approach like a breeze but can come like a gale. By some I get hit but all have shown fear. I'll dance to the music though I can't hear. Of names I have many, of names I have one. I'm slow as a snail but from me you cant run. What am I?

Surrounded by hills,
I rest on an isle
Known for its castles
And "baggy" music style

I can hide a monster
At least some think
But for what it's worth
I'm one of nature's sinks
