6a climbing by 4 year old in gym


(2:30 Min)

He has no trainer or training group. What do you think?

Enough training?

So I'm planning on hiking Harney Peak in SD. I've been running 200 miles per week, doing 3,000 vertical a day on a treadmill, swimming 20 miles a week, bench press 400 lbs, and am covered head to toe in Columbia gear. Is this enough?
