Climbing Outdoors June 2009

The kids are off to a great summer of outdoor climbing. Day one, Brooke redpointed "Attention fragile" 5.11+/7a on her second try. Shawn worked "Ileou" 5.12c/7b+ and hopes to get it on his next attempt.

Yesterday we went to Capucin and Brooke redpointed "Tapis rouge" 5.12-/7a+. Shawn redpointed "Terreur precataclysmique" 7b/5.12 and then did laps on it!

Didier entered a long bike race in thePyrenees (170km). He came back saying he was done with biking as it was too hard! Luckily, that didn't last too long.

I've been enjoying climbing everyday with the kids doing 5.13's and having a blast!
