Nice picture. Wish I could climb twice my age. (Or even half of it)

Cute photo, that probably isn't tilted (much?), but the weird angles of rock and trees are playing tricks with my mind.
I like the captured hand movement, tentative facial expression, and that the rope isn't under tension!

Well done Coco!
... Lookout photographer, as I predict that it won't be long and she will be dragging you up climbs!
Heh, heh, heh.

Nice one, and good to see diversification in the Photo Gallery.
Go Coco!

Any feedback on what Coco thought about climbing that route?

Reasonably good pic, but I'm worried the high chocky morals have been compramized by featuring a pic of a sub 16 yr old girl in bondage.

Good shot, she looks like she is having a ball.

What harness setup are you using? I'm looking for one for
the same age..

It looks like a petzel kids chest harness. I could be wrong but in any case I got one
when my daughter was a similar age to coco and it expands so it still fits her as a tall
10 year old. Was a while ago but think was less than $100.
. Pretty sure I got it from Steve rock hardware. He was and continues to be

Post edit - oops doesn't look like a petzel without the beer goggles on. However I
stand by the recommendation as have been impressed with their size versatility

IT's the Edelrid Fraggle II - which I bought from Aus Climbing Anchors. Rock hardware have the Petzl Simba, which is similar to my older daughter's harness.

We bought the XS Fraggle rather than the XXS - as the measurements are 50-65cm; however it's quite big on her. We figure she'll grow into it - if I had bought this for my older daughter and knew Coco would be using it later; I would
definitely go for the XXS - but as she's the youngest, we're happy to wait.

The Fraggle is the only kid's full-body harness "designed for kids" - the other brands seem to be standard full-body harnesses shrunk down. You definitely notice the shoulder straps on the Petzl come loose much easier.
We also bought 2 Petzl Picchu helmets - they are bigger than my wife's Elios.


And to Duang Duank - she loved it and did several laps.
She's not very good at going down, I always end up pretty much carrying her. My older daughter loves being lowered.

Vote 1 on the Petzl. Easy to use and very adjustable. Rig a rope up in a tree to start and get the kids swinging around in the harness for a bit of confidence building (and teach them that they don't have to hang on to the rope when lowering).
