Rock Climber

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 4 September 2016 in Sport & Recreation.

By the lake is this small rock outcrop that Alex thought he should try his hand at. Alex, since age 4, has been climbing the rock climbing wall at the YMCA gym he is a member of. He goes all the way to the top! The instructor there uses him as an example, for older kids, of how it's done.

This little outcrop was no challenge at all.

The angle and viewpoint for this picture makes it look somewhat dangerous. The explanation helps me like the climb of this talented youngster.
