They don’t rent climbing shoes at Kitty Hawk Kites. I didn’t know they had an indoor wall the first day we went there so we forgot to bring his shoes. We remembered his shoes all of the other times though. He had his harness and shoes in the rest of the videos.
The employees at KHK were kind of shocked that he had his own equipment. He is probably the only 5 year old that would insist on bringing climbing equipment to a “beach” vacation on the chance that there would be something to climb.

Yea my heart was pumping out of my chest at that point. Good thing I was "on camera" instead of "on Belay". I was actually shaking at that point and he was as cool as the other side of the pillow. He just chalked up and continued on his merry way.

Thanks for the words of encouragement. I hope he sticks with it or something else that he has passion for. It would be a shame for him to waste his talent. He isn't showing any indication of that right now though. He just goes out there with a big smile and some serious determination.

5 out of 5 stars Extremely good editing. May I suggest using an HD camera though? The new Panasonic DMC-ZS3 shoots very good 720p video and it takes decent still pictures as well. It is only about $350 right now and it fits in your pocket.

Great climbing! Keep posting videos. Yours are fun to watch.

5 out of 5 stars "i don't see anything all too incredible"

I get that. He is not your child. We all see a whole more in our own children than we do in others. How many children do you have? Are they better climbers than you are?
-
5 out of 5 stars She is getting really good. Man 4 and she is that good? She will be a monster by the time she is 5! Keep posting the videos. They are great.
-
So he is 5 now right? What is he up to? Did he get burned out on it? Just curious because I have a 5 year old that is getting into it now also.
-
Very nice footage. Great HD video! What camera was used to film this? It would be a shame to waste that great HD footage on a DVD. Where can we get the Blu-ray or download the HD content?
-
5 out of 5 stars Yes most of his moves in that video were big jugs. However, the park where we climb has some nice cracks and smaller holds that he does. He is starting to try heel hooks and other things now also.

I didn't say he was the next Sharma. I asked if you think he could be the next Sharma. There is a difference. Plus someone suggested that in every other video I posted.

Here is a video where the poster does say the child is "Future best Climber in the world" though.

5 out of 5 stars What is wrong with posting comments? Several people asked questions about the video so I responded. That is how a forum works you know.

Also, that is not my son in the “Best climber in the world” video. That is an example of someone else exclaiming that they coach a child that will be the best in the world. I have no idea if my son will become a great climber. I don’t even know if he will still be into climbing next week.

He is enjoying it now as you can see in the video and I don’t push him to do it at all. I post videos of him because most people have said they like them. I put that title on it because it would get buried on youtube if I had just said something generic like “Boy climbs wall”.

I watched this DVD today. It actually was quite good. It was cool to see Sharma saying that “The new river is one of the greatest places to climb”. I also want a pair of those golf/climbing gloves with the rubber inserts.

The music was fantastic by the way. Overall I thought this was a great DVD. It was a little expensive but probably worth it.
-
5 out of 5 stars Naw I didn’t ignore her. I didn’t put a lot of her climbing in the video because I had to stand in the cameras view to spot her most of the time. There are some good climbs of hers in there though. However, she really doesn’t like to climb any higher than 2 feet so the videos of her were not very long.

It was more important that I spot my son rather than my daughter because he was climbing much higher than her. Also it is pretty tough to give your undivided attention to a 3 year old and 5 year old simultaneously, while they both climb, and you are watching them by yourself.

5 out of 5 stars Cool Video. Great job.
-
4 out of 5 stars "any vid that has "hunger strike" as the soundtrack is 5 stars. nice."

Yea that is a great song. However, I will give $5 via paypal to the FIRST person who can name the entire title of the instrumental song playing during his first climb and the Bass guitarist who played that awesome solo!
-
4 out of 5 stars "Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth) by Cliff Burton! Unfortunately, I don't have a paypal account."

If you create one then it will earn you $5. Thanks for helping us remember one of the legends of music who died way too early in his life.
-
4 out of 5 stars Cool little problem.
-
5 out of 5 stars "I'm not sure.. but I think sport climbing & top rope climbing are 2 diferent things."

Just curious but where does top roping belong? Is it Trad then?

Fun video. How many cameras did you have? The dude in the red looked TALL. You can't teach height.
-
5 out of 5 stars Kids who climb ROCK! Wow Lead climbing at 3? That is hard core. Looks like you have another climber on the way. Congrats! Look forward to future climbing videos from them.
-
Nice climb!
-
Nice wall. Where did you get your holds?
-
Awesome video! Excellent HD quality on youtube and some great climbing. Keep posting the videos. They are a lot of fun to watch.
-
5 out of 5 stars Awesome Video! That was a lot of fun to watch. Keep posting.
-
5 out of 5 stars Yes that is me. I climb there every other day at lunch.
Thanks for the kind words about my son’s climbing. He really loves to climb and he puts every ounce of energy into it.
We had all of the kids in our neighborhood over this week to try out the new overhang. It was a lot of fun. Except 6 kids between the ages of 4 and 8 can be a handful to keep up with. At least, we have the climbing wall to give the kids a good outlet for their energy.
See you at TRC sometime.
-
5 out of 5 stars Is there a Blu-ray of it?
-
Yes he is definitely a fast learner. If he sees a move once he usually can mimic it.

This was filmed at North Cary Park. Just outside of Raleigh NC. It is two man made concrete boulders with a nice bright blue rubberized padding around them. We are really lucky to have extremely nice parks throughout the city.
-
What is crazy is that this girl was pulling V10s at 10 years old and V11s at 11. However, she still does not win all of the youth competitions now. How many girls under 15 can pull greater than a V11? There can’t be too many of those, right?
-
5 out of 5 stars That is awesome that you can shoot pro quality video on a relatively inexpensive DSLR. What did you use to edit the video?

Would you mind creating a post in the photography section just explaining a little bit about how you made the video? I am sure everyone would love to know how to shoot excellent video like this.

Great job!
-
5 out of 5 stars Awesome video! Some of the highest quality I have ever seen. What camera was used? Please keep posting.

“Campusing, small crimps and pockets, highball problems, etc. this video plays like a list of everything kids should avoid doing at a young age. I fear for this girl's long term health.”

One of the comments on the youtube page indicated that she was either coming back from an injury or trying to get back into the sport. Also her webpage pretty much has not been updated for a few years.

5 out of 5 stars Great job. It looked cold. Did it get snowed out the first day?
-
5 out of 5 stars I loved the music. It definitely added to the southern feel. Great video. Keep posting.
-
5 out of 5 stars Can't wait to see the Blu-ray on April 1st. If this is as good as or better than Pure then it will definitely be worth the purchase.
-
5 out of 5 stars Got my Blu-ray on Saturday. Absolutely, perfect video quality and great audio as well. A lot of great behind the scenes stories. However, not nearly as much actual climbing footage as Pure had. Overall an excellent climbing video and the first climbing Blu-ray I have ever seen.
-
5 out of 5 stars Awesome video.
-
5 out of 5 stars Good story and very well done video.
-
5 out of 5 stars Cool little video.

5 out of 5 stars Fire breathing climbing shoes? Check!
Smile on his face? Check!
He has everything he needs to be a beast of a climber one day.

Best video of the series!
-
5 out of 5 stars Great video. What did you use to do the slow motion?
-
5 out of 5 stars @shuffleboardfan I guess you probably don't let your kids climb the stairs then?
-
5 out of 5 stars Wow great climb.
-
5 out of 5 stars I hope to see these kids in the Olympics in 2020. Go team USA!
-
1 out of 5 stars I don't believe that is really GoPro III Black edition footage. You posted this long before the camera was even announced.

5 out of 5 stars She is a beast!
