Description

This is a nice, non-intimidating slab introduction for kids in the 3-6 year range. My oldest daughter liked it so much she did it 3 times as her first true rock climb at age 5 & my youngest did it twice at 3 1/2. Perhaps all of 30 feet. 1 bolt on top to belay, so I'd recommend a belay from above (great for high fives or hugs). Note, in the direct sun of summer the rock can heat up for tender fingers. There is a little NE face under some branches offering a bit of shade with 5.4 climbing if they want to add a bit more technical difficulty (oldest one did that on the next turn). Bigger kids could challenge themselves with the 5.7 20 foot W face or the 5.9 SW face. There are even a few variations to the right of the 5.9 face checking in about 5.8 for taller kids.

Protection

Guess you could put pro in, but there is one bolt on top.
