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.
Hiking the mile or so trail back to the car is always a pleasant end to the day: passing other climbers and hikers, trading brief stories about the climbs of the day, and chatting with old friends. Our little guy is shy. He has a difficult time meeting strangers and even balks at saying \"hi\" to the guys who work in our building. But that day, perhaps buoyed by the confidence gained from climbing his first mountain or the feeling of kinship with his fellow climbersor maybe just the pride of carrying his cool backpack with a couple of carabiners hanging off the webbinghe was right there with us, smiling and bantering with the people we passed. It was a big moment.
Invite your neighbors or friends, Dont underestimate the power of community. Invite your kids friends over to \"camp out\" as well. There are some kids today that never get the opportunity to camp and learn new and exciting adventure like those that the great outdoors offers. The more the merrier is the motto when it comes to camping in the backyard.
