-==== Red Head vs. Hard Rock! (Climbing) ==== 
- 
- 
-During Spring Break, James invited his school chum Aryn to go climbing, 
-so the two kids, along with Dad and Aryn's mother Pam went off to Pilot 
-Mountain. ​ This was Aryn and Pam's first time on real rock. 
- 
- 
- 
- 
-We set up on a 5.6 climb called Goldilox just west of the descent 
-gully. ​ This is the climb James did the first time he visited Pilot Mountain 
-so Dad figured it would be a good place to start. 
- 
- 
- 
- 
-Goldilox starts out with an easy climb to a low shelf, but then 
-comes the crux, a confidence-testing lateral move to a small vertical 
-crack system that provides handholds for the ascent up the face.  Quite the 
-stretch for 8-year-olds,​ and once they'​ve made it, they have to tiptoe up the 
-face trusting that their feet will stay stuck to some pretty small nubbins 
-on the rock.  Once they are 15 feet up, however, the rest of the climb is 
-very easy. 
- 
- 
- 
- 
-James and Dad were impressed with Aryn's progress. ​ She was tentative 
-on her first attempt, but on the second one, she made it past the crux with 
-a small assist from her belayer -- it's amazing how much confidence a little 
-upward tug from the rope will provide. 
- 
- 
- 
- 
-Once she'd done the route once, no more assistance was needed, and 
-both kids spent the rest of the day blitzing the route, trying minor variations, 
-practicing their "​batman walking"​ down the face after each climb, and generally 
-having fun.
