I guess I may have a more detailed trip report later (I haven't decided if I'll write one or not), but here are a few photos from last weekend.

Very cool.

You need to get that kid a right-sized down jacket!

It was very irresponsible of those kids to drag you old guys up such a demanding route :shock: :wink:

Scott -- it's been fun watching him grow into that green down parka over the years! Nice work...very cool to see. I have an adopted two-year-old from Lesotho coming in a few months and I can't wait to start hiking with him. Thanks for setting a good example!

Congrats.

It was the funniest thing watching him drag that green coat down the trail by the sleeve during the SP gathering. I may have a pic at home, I'll check.

Looks like fall is setting in up there, judging by the first picture. Man, summer goes fast.

Fantastic! You are one way cool Dad!

They will have wonderful, lifelong memories of climbing with their Father. You're their Hero.

Incredible photos too. Brings back such vivid remembrances of climbing Capitol.

Please write a trip report! And get the young men to add their own views! Many would enjoy hearing some reports from a child's vantage point.

You are an inspiration, Scott. Thanks for sharing.

Nov 2007 pic is precious -- sort of a teletubbie / Jaba-the-Hutt convention, but much cuter.
