Climber parents out there 20-May-2022 At 12:28:16 PM Olbert
Hey I'm a climber parent with a couple of young kids. The eldest is just starting to enjoy 'wock kimbing' and loves going to the local bouldering gym. I really want to encourage them both to enjoy climbing like I do. I've built myself a 40 degree Moonboard which is great for me but won't be good for them until they are a good few years older. And even then, it'll only be good if they really get into climbing. I'm thinking of building an easier smaller wall on the deck - maybe 2.5m high 2.5m wide anywhere from vertical to 30 degees overhanging (or maybe even on a hinge!) Something that will be fun family time and where they can join in. What I fear is building it, then using it twice and never again. It'd be a pretty expensive and time consuming project to have go to waste.

What I want to know is have other climbing parents gone down this route? Is it worth it? Do you have any tips? Should I just buy a trampoline?
