ROCK CLIMBING makes kids stronger in many aspects of their lives.
Proficient climbing demands physical fitness, courage, discipline, trust, creativity, patience, and intelligence. Climbing helps children learn respect and gratitude for nature. Climbing helps children learn that happiness comes from rich and fulfilling experiences, not from money and cheap entertainment. Climbing teaches the universally-applicable principle that persistent, hard work brings success.
CLIMBING: THE PARENT-CHILD INTERFACE
For parents, climbing with children provides almost unlimited opportunities for positive interaction. Climbing - when pursued according to the principles set forth in this website - strengthens relationships within the family and leads to positive results.
We've been climbing long enough as a family to have accumulated countless memories of wonderful experiences together. Our hope is that you will find something in this website which is useful to you, or perhaps even inspirational.
Although the BLOG chronicles the most recent experiences we’ve had, the WRITINGS page is likely the most helpful section of this website, and includes articles and anecdotes authored by the members of our family on topics pertaining to climbing and family values. The other sections of this website are self-explanatory.
