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? =)
