I take my 10 year old climbing almost every Sunday, but I'm am still wondering if he enjoys the climbing, or if he just likes spending time with dad and he is just humoring me.

Fantastic pics, all.

Todd, love the OW injury shot. Psyched to see this thread take on a life of its own!

Now I've gotta live up to Ryan's, "Makes me want to go climbing, Dad."

Greg,

One thing I failed to mention and that was my philosophy regarding parenting which essentially amounted to this: Your childs best chance at happiness is to be with a happy parent. That said I'm always happiest in the mountains. If the truth were known my kids never had a chance ;^)

Classic. And clearly true. My secret ambition is to take Ryan on a 2-3 month surf trip to Indonesia between high school and college... Last couple times out surfing together it has evolved to him on his board and me on mine, and he seems to enjoy it, so we're quietly making progress. ;-)
