      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Spring Break with kids and climbing...

Recommended Posts

j tree. lots of non climbing walking about like the biggest joshua tree (which is outside the park but damn big) and the climbing of course.

 

red rocks climbing and an occasional forray into the town for some good kid fun (like g rated shows. blue man group for example)

 

whatever place has a variety of things to do besides climbing

I'll second Red Rocks. Lots of climbing with great approaches. Interesting hiking. Try a buffet for dinner mid-week, or for kids one of the casino family amusement parks. Glimpse a showgirl!

How about New York and DC?

I gave my daughters their choice. That's what they chose.

I used to go down to Indian cr every spring. The nights are cold and the days hit 80. If it rains, hike the trails out of Squaw flats. If there are thunder showers, go watch the sunset over Squaw flats. That is the most spectacular natural color display I have ever seen.

Actually, I was whining not suggesting.
sack up man! My middle boy asked about disneyworld, my older boy and myself both simultaneously said "No f-ing way" and proceeded to name off all of the climbing areas within striking range!

If you're going to DC, rent a car and drive to Seneca. (I'm going to DC over spring break with my kids...)

Sounds like a good f-ing example you're setting.
