We celebrated Father's Day by taking a camping/climbing trip. We headed out to Linville Falls where we camped at the campground. Not a spectacular campground tho very quiet. Since it was Sunday we managed to get a site by the river so we had lots of water time. Monday we headed off to Grandfather Mountain as we had heard about a great climbing area for learning. Sure enough, the area was fantastic. Lots of wall to play on, lots of traversing so no need for a rope. We did rope up a couple of climbs tho as G wanted to go to the top. Of course he took to climbing like a spider, getting to the top in no time. C had a little trouble with the height issue tho one of his great strengths is perseverance. He attemted both climbs. We all enjoyed the weekend and ready to go again.
