I started climbing in 2015 when my son, Ben, asked if we could try it out. I borrowed some climbing gear from a friend, went up to Suicide, and top roped what was probably 20 feet of a 5.2. We were converted. Since then, we have gone a little beyond 5.2 at Taquitz, Joshua Tree, and Yosemite. Ben (born 2003) and I would love to head out with another father-son team who loves to climb.
