A Few Words: Would like to find others with young kids to climb with 'family expedition style".

All time favorite quote "Only those that don't climb mountains ask why people climb them. For those who climb, the answer is both obvious and almost impossible to explain. Perhaps the simplest answer is that life is infinitely simplified when your climbing. The everyday concerns of livelihood, of social standing, of overdue bills and futuresless romances all fall away before the vast and overwhelming absolute of the mountain. Aside from an ice ax, a few carabiner loops, and a length of rope, there is nothing to rely on but yourself and those with whom you climb. On the precipice not only of the world but of your own existence, you look back with a mixture of pity and contempt at those who fuss away their time on the wheel of the working day." ~ The Ice Soldier by Paul Watkins.
