That looks like quite an adventure. I'm grateful they're home safely.

My son & his climbing buddy Daniel

Ooh, that looks like fun! I used to be a climber, till I moved away from all convenient climbing areas and found my dad bod.

Looks like he’s probably Trad Climbing, I only ever trade climbed up to about 5.6, but I sport climbed a few 5.10c back in the day. What I would give to be climbing again... I miss those days.
