David_Parker Posted August 1, 2003 Share Posted August 1, 2003 I have thoroughly enjoyed the past two rope-ups, but frankly I'm a bit overwhelmed with the direction it is heading. I applaud Beck for jumping in with all the organization he's done to date to bring in sponsorships, free beer and raffles. Still, it seems it risks losing the original flavor and becoming something I'm not so sure I'm interested in. I am still inclined to attend, but also have another idea. It seems there are plenty of us out there that have kids who like to climb. How does the idea of a rope up for kids sound. Same idea as original rope up, but focused on less beer and more climbing. It would be a great opportunity for parents with kids to meet and form friendships for future climbing outings with kids. For me it seems like when I drag my kid out, he'd often have more fun if it weren't just daddy to climb with. I have talked with other people with kids about getting together, but it just doesn't seem to happen spontaneously. It could be the same weekend but a different campground for obvious reasons or a different weekend altogether so it wouldn't be a conflict at all for those who'd like to do both. This could even expand into something that works for those of us who have spouses who only dabble in climbing and wouldn't mind getting out on the rock too. Lets hear who's interested!
