      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!

TR: Kids first REAL climb at Der Worth

Recommended Posts

Thanks to Jens, I now have 2 Petzl full body harnesses, for my 2 year old and 4 year old.



Our first car-camping trip of the year we headed to Der Worth. But we only were able to leave the house at 2pm Sat.... oh well. Got to 8 Mile CG and despite the sign saying "Campsites Available" there were none left....except at the group site, where The Mountaineers graciously allowed us to become honorary members for the evening! :) We walked across the street to XY and my kids climbed the low-angled gully to the immediate left of the climbs there, 4th class. The 4 year old did one lap, and the 2-year old did 2 laps, second lap going real well!



Woke up and after some breakfast at the Rennaisance Cafe, went on a hike up past Hammerhead Rock. It was nice but the 2-year old gets tired fast hiking uphill so we returned and climbed the obvious route at Hammerhead, for the kids first legit "5.6"-ish ascent! This is a good route for small kids, and we'll return again for this one. Yay team!
