It’s no great secret.
Finn loves climbing.
He had his seventh birthday at Vertical World. We’ve spent more than a few evenings at the Seattle Bouldering Project. And if I had a dime for every time he asked me when we’re going to go climbing next I’d be a very rich man.
His latest escapade — the climbing wall at the downtown REI. Yesterday afternoon Finn and I hit it for his good buddy Carter Ellis’ 7th birthday party, and let’s just say he had a great time.
And it wasn’t because of the pizza.
Four trips to the top of the 65-foot ball, the first few of which prompted chants of “Finn! Finn! Finn!” from his classmates below.
And I dare say I was more frightened watching him than he was climbing.
