Ledge Rat,
I assume you mean that in the most loving, sarcastic, I-suck-as-a-climber-compared-to-that-fetus kind of way?

Bravo to the next gen. Amazing.

Ive seen him climb at the gym, and not surprised. He was amazing to watch. What a proud send!

Looks like he sent it in incredibly good style too (eg not rapping in to work the two hard pitches)

I have always enjoyed the Dad's postings of their family climbs, as it seems the kids are tough, resilient, but most importantly, are having a lot of fun. What do you think, fossil climber? Would you have guessed way back when that a 15 yr. old would do all the moves free?

Thanks for that, JLP.

Jim Herson is one of the best contributors to this old site. It's not too surprising that the apple doesn't fall...

But amazing nonetheless.
