First day trying wide for Ladd--I told him it was called grovelling...














...he called it "Gulching" !!!!1111



Inspired by the OW brits, he wants to bring America back to the forefront of the Wyde crack climbing

Hope you two can get out today to MR and show Ken and Kyle what really climbing is. I know those 2 are just on face climbs and need Ladd and you to show them the wide stuff.

Might stop in tommorrow - I still have those shorts.

Kids are natural climbers anyhow.
Chimney/offwidth much reminds me of the bad old days tunneling behind the couch.
Although Ladd's form is much better!

With a little chicken-wing practice, heel-toe footwork, and tons of abdominal work--little man Ladd is aiming to match the feats of those hard training Brits, The Wyde Boyz !!!!1111

That Ladd is a badass. If ya'll think the pics are cool, you should see him climb in person.
That kid is game for anything. Great stuff, Kevin(and Ladd!)
