My son Leland's bouldering determination and his first Five, at The Circuit, 410 NE 17th Ave., as filmed by his brother Lamont. Five is the hardest.



After watching, Grandma says, "Perseverance wins!" Be sure you've got your volume turned up.

I can just imagine some sore feet and hands and muscles ache where you didn't think you had muscles. Nice job.

Very cute. He is determined, that's for sure! I've not seen one of these things before. Looks like fun, but I think I'll leave it for the younger generation!

Something very interesting, he did well! I'd like this, but I'm too old and too lazy for it. Maybe even too heavy...

Good for him. I think I'll stay off that wall if you don't mind . . .

I was wondering what you meant by bouldering! Looks like a lot of fun.

bill said...

LOL! I love that he never gave up.
I would be by the bar after two times trying.

I'd like to see the area where he landed after the falls. It must by safe since I didn't see any safety ropes or straps. It would be lots of fun if I were a few decades younger! He deserves some accolades for perseverance as his wise grandmother commented.

whoo hoo made it. Personally, I would have just climbed up the stairs on the back side of the wall.
