We checked out a few hand holds he couldn't reach from the ground. A couple feet too.

I don't remember this, so I think you're fine.

Nah, it's hard aid free solo climbing. Definitely a FA too...

No, quite the opposite Chris, you just sandbagged the route for him. He's going to remember this super deep jug for his left hand and be saaaadly disappointed when he throws for it only to find that for his full grown hands it's actually a tips-only crimper. Way to go!

Young lungs should not be exposed to chalk dust.

A good program to start, Chuck A Tot.

Keep tossing your little one up against the rock until they stick.

Chris, poor form, totally aiding that section and what's with the beta on the hand-hold???

I like the way he is looking up for that next great hold. He's already a pro!

And no crash pad, no helmet, and Chris looks like he is enjoying himself... clearly child endangerment laws apply here.

I was pretty sure if I soloed a flatiron with him the baby bjorn I could make the news and the CPS hit list, lol.

And there was no chalk ('cept for the boulderers overchalkage on the rock) and we changed his diaper on the crashpad and fed him from a rock. Hippies I tell ya.

He wanted to try mono's but I told him he was too young.


So instead we worked on our footwook. He said his jammies need some C4.

Age 22 months...pointing out to my niece the route to take on limestone. Ruined it for her. She's now 31.

Glad to see other parents of little kids, anxious to turn them into ropeguns, trying to give them beta, when all they want to do is climb up so they can jump down on the crashpad, and then go look for lizards.

Haha love it Quinn. Yea he can't have a Strider until he can walk and no climbing for a bit longer but I can't wait :)
