Rock Climbing Photo: heading up with The Duck on my back
Any other couples with a kid (or kids) interested in exchanging belaying or babysitting duties at the New River Gorge, Seneca, climbing gym, etc. sometime?

My wife, tiny daughter, and I live in the DC area, and last weekend we went to the New. I was fortunate to be meeting a few good friends there, which enabled my wife and I to swap out babysitting and climbing time. And while my friends were great about it, we were clearly not pulling our weight with the group and I felt like a huge mooch.

So that got me thinking that it'd be great to meet some other climbing couples with small children so we could trade off belays or babysitting to everyone's benefit. Anyone interested?

Also, would appreciate any advice on cragging with a baby.

Hi Andrew! Me and my partner live in the DC area as well. I do have a son that is 5. However, Iam still newer at climbing. We have done some top rope climbing at Sugarloaf and wolf rock and go to Earth Treks a bunch as well. Would be interested in meeting up with you all to meet some local climbers! Steph Doyle
