Figuring out how to get on the climb.
Looks steep from this angle. Making sure he's safe on his first lead.

The start is much harder than 5.2, and I'm 6'4"! I imagine for a 4-year old it's the equivalent of 5.13c R. Great work, Little Man!

Hey, that was my kid's first lead, too! It wasn't an on-sight though. He had top-roped it the day before. The only problem we had was at the top. He weighed so little he couldn't lower! I had to climb up and pull him down.

@Malcom: It's a great first lead, for sure. Now he's 8, and he's sending routes harder than I can. Serves me right for starting him out so young, right? =)
