Thanks for the help Oxbow 27-9 28-Sep-2015 At 5:30:01 PM rolsen1
Thanks for the kind words of encouragement to my son yesterday from the poxbow chains...

Yesterday, I took my 3 kids on their first multi-pitch adventure, 3 kids and me, maybe a bit ambitious but we survived. My youngest, Ned, did have a bit of a freakout when the rope was running on the wrong side of the bulge that he needed to climb around on the second pitch. For about ten minutes a patient climber on the next climb talked him through the process, of first trying to flick the rope and then into climbing up and repositioning the rope. While his anxious father, out of view was wondering whether I'd have to tie him off and rap down.

I didn't get your name but thank you.

Anyway, Oxbow is a great route for a first multi, we didn't do the traverse but instead continued straight up to the top. We roped up for the descent as well which added to the epicness of it all. Recommended.
