Starting Young/Climbing Hard
This is our 20 month old boy bouldering hard on our basement climbing wall - he was born 2.5 months premature and was in intensive care for 55 days; he's got a fighting spirit (note the diaper hanging out the back).

Thanks Dow. Believe me we'd like nothing better than for him to lose the diaper!!

Thanks! It's been awhile since I posted anything on summitpost; still recovering from shoulder surgery. I've been out ice climbing some easy stuff in the last couple of weeks, so am hopeful to get back into the swing of things in the next couple of months. Cheers!

Thanks - he had a tough start but is doing great now. I have mixed emotions about him taking after the old man - but one things for sure; they'll end up doing what they want (regardless of whether we want them to or not).

Hi Heidi (I'm assuming that's the mysterious HS) - I had an even better shot of him, when he pulled up to make the next move, but it was out of focus. He'll be bouldering as hard as his mom soon.

Yep, it's me. I miss those winter evenings in the cave! How's your shoulder (I hear you got your surgery)?

It's OK I guess - still quite sore, but I'm starting to get out climbing (we're heading out tomorrow). I'm walking the line around pushing it too much (it's a 6-8 month recovery; and I'm on my 4th month). Greg and Shaun are both physiotherapists, and my climbing partners for tomorrow; so if I reinjure myself, I'm blaming it on them. You should populate your SummitPost site with some pics.
