    the distance covered is not the same. if one climbs faster, the other guy might also climb a shorter distance.

    well i think i got it. without solving. since there is no external force momentum of the system is conserved. and since there masses are equal the rate at which they climb up the rope relative to ground is equal. hence they will reach at the same time. is that fine? correct me if i am wrong.

    yup, their velocity relative to the ground is equal.
