A year ago we built a small climbing wall inside our house. It’s only about 9 feet tall, but the kids have used it well. Now they climb doorways and trees and narrow hallways. Anyway, last night we finally got away and I took her to a climbing gym. Now she’s 7 mind you, and this is her first real climb. I sent this pic home to the mrs.
This was the reply; “wtf Jim? Jesus h Christ!” Lol.
We stayed four more hours and my daughter met and climbed with some older girls. Here she is (now a professional) picking a route
She chose her routes very well for a beginner on the big stuff. I hope she continues to choose her own way instead of falling in line and following some pre-designed, fine-tuned lifestyle that restricts her ability.
