So I'm looking for places to climb which are well suited for children. We have a three and ten year old. I am looking for areas which have easy approaches, good landings and routes which kids normally have success on. Also close to routes that we can enjoy as well. Some areas that I already have found to be good are:

The Salt Lake Slips, Storm Mountain, Challenge, Dogwood (though the river makes me nervous.), Pete's Rock, Lisa Falls.

Hopefully someone has some areas to add to this list. I am hoping to find some other places to enjoy this summer with the kiddos. Also feel free to add places that are good for weekend road trips such as: mountainproject.com/v/crawd...

Thanks for the input.

Maple seems to have lots of kids and dogs. Not sure on a particular crag. What out for rock fall at Maple it happens frequently.

A few others to consider:

AF Canyon
Hard Rock South Face
Tank Canyon
The Membrane (5.9 is the easiest)

Echo Canyon
Clint Eastwood Wall
Roadside Crag

Ogden
9th Street
29th Street

Maple Canyon
Pretty much all of it with a few exceptions (pipe dream, the compound)

Rock Canyon
The Kitchen
Black Rose
George

Plenty of others, but these are just a few that my kids enjoy.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
