My kid expressed interest in climbing outside! Glory Hallelujah!

Can anyone suggest a good top rope spot for kids in the Wasatch Range? I'm wanting something low 5th class. My kid is 7 and doesn't trust the rope. I have a rack and experience with anchors, so bolted anchors are not necessary.

We are visiting my parents in Highland, but driving an hour for a good spot is no big deal.

Thanks!

Red Rock down in Draper. Several 5.6 and .7s. Bolted, easy access to anchors from the top for setting up TR without leading. Short walk from the road to the rock. Almost always a group of kids on TR there on the weekend. Hamm

Red Rock is good. Was there this morning.

Also the Slips in Big Cottonwood.

Also try Dogwood or Beachball. Just be wary of the river this time of year.

There's an EZ face west of The Amphitheater area on Storm Mtn as well that's decent.
