Hello all,
I am going to visit a friend of the family in Brevard around Xmas and their 9 year old daughter is a gym rat crusher who has never been on real rock.
I was hoping for a suggestion for some fun routes that I could get TR or easy approach access to. (I solo quite a bit, and don't plan on doing it to put up a rope, but wouldn't feel too out of my comfort zone doing a move or two off a ledge etc...)
She placed well in a comp with an open age group recently, so I was hoping for advice on somewhere with some varying grades, in case she just crushes everything. Then again, being 9, she might struggle with slab, friction, reading rock, etc... Sorry if I am being too picky, but would love some local advice. I would prefer not to drive way out of the way, I have climbed rumbling bald, and looking glass before, but don't know them well.
Thanks in advance,
Adam

Adam, I don't have any specific route / crag suggestions for you. However, I will suggest that you call Looking Glass Outfitters. The owner, Phil, is a climber and a very cool cat. I also think that Brad is working there this week. He is also a very serious climber. Between the two of them they could probably point you to the area that would best suit you best. Good luck!

Myself placing a a blue/yellow offset MC to protect between Bolt 2/3 just post crux . <br /> <br />Picture credit goes to eric Singleton, and many thanks to Josh Bagget for the great belay.

Looking Glass: Hike to the Nose. At the base continue to climbers left and go down the hill along the base of the cliff. You will get to a low angle slab. Either solo or walk up the trail to the top and set up a TR.

South face has options as well.

The "crack"

If you are really looking for TR options I would recommend Crowders. It may be a bit far for you to drive(prob 1.5hrs) but you can set a TR on 80% of the routes (5.4s through 5.12s and up). Its a great place to take beginners especially if your worried about them crushing the lower grades. Thats my go to spot if we have inexperienced climbers or people who just want to run up tons of routes in a short period of time.
