>family rock climbing

>On Saturday I took my daughter rock climbing at the local rock columns. These columns have been a kind of mecca of sorts, located somewhat near the downtown of our city. Four blocks away is a good rock gym with artificial holds, but there is nothing like real rock. My daughter made it about two thirds of the way to the top and then had to fight against fear to get back down.

Today we went again and this time she made it to the top! The fear was still there, but she did really well and eventually overcame her fear. I think she will become a good rock climber. She started climbing a couple of years ago, first at the rock gym and then once at the columns last year.


Practicing trusting the rope.


Made it to the top!

I am so proud of her.
