Joon Ma Rock Climbing and My Four-Year-Old! Since having my son four years ago, the number of days Ive spent climbing every year has dropped precipitouslyfrom over 100 days at one point to zero. Climbing has always been one of my favorite things to do with my husband, but these days weve substituted playdates and picnics in the park for mountain adventures. Not a bad tradebut still, Ive missed climbing. Living in New York City and working a demanding job made me appreciate all the things it has to offer: the beauty, the companionship, the physical effort, the mental challengeeven the fear. Raising my son, I looked forward to a time when I could introduce him to the cliffs, once he was old enough.
Boy, did he look cute heading down the trail with his little backpack! We had a couple of routes on our list to check out but it became clear fairly quickly that our first choice wouldnt work. A climb called Three Pines was as gentle as we remembered, but the start had a sequence of reaches that were just too big for a little boy barely over three feet tall. We decided to head down the cliff, and soon we were dropping our packs at the base of a rarely climbed corner. The route was steep but full of holdsperfect.
