Knowing the patience required to keep children occupied in the mountains, this makes my head spin and my heart warm. But be forewarned: it won't be long before YOU'RE slowing THEM down, before they're waiting for you at the top, and before they're borrowing your gear, car, etc. to go climbing on their own. But you know that's what you've bargained for.
Good for them and good for you! =D>

Wow. What an incredible accomplishment! Congrats to Axel, Calvin, and you as well dad. I will always be thankful to my father for introducing me to the mountains at an early age and I am sure your boys will feel the same way. Congrats again!

Axel, perhaps you would be willing to guide me up the hard 14ers. I'm kind of a wimp compared to you.
