Monday Morning Slab, Right 5.4
Trip ReportMonday Morning Slab: First multi-pitch climb with the the kids
My wife and I took the kids on their first multi-pitch climb this weekend. Monday Morning Slab was a great choice. My 9-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter loved it. The short approach is great, although there was some snow at the base we had to cross.
We climbed with double ropes, my son on one and my wife and daughter on the other. I belayed using a reverso which worked great, My son would start up and when he was 20 or 30 feet up they would head up. Descending was a little slow, I would lower my wife and daughter, then lower my son, then rap down.
The kids and parents had a great day and all want to come back for more. We are thinking of trying the Sunnyside Bench Regular Route next. Any other recommendations for great climbs with the kids, tr or multi?
