This adventure made the memory for our vacation. We just arrived home from Slade, Kentucky which is only six hours from St. Louis and one hour south of Lexington. We have been getting away with our three teenagers over Thanksgiving weekend for the last few years.
We have bouldered before, but never had gear on except for an indoor climbing wall. After a short lesson,My husband and myself finished the first three sections of the wall. We are not in shape. It was not hard, but it was exciting being that high up and "learning the ropes". My three kids finished the next two sections which required more upper body strength. They loved it. If we had done this the first day, I think we would have returned to try a guided trip and clinic on climbing. 35.00 was worth it.
I recommend this for an outdoor kind of family who like to expose their kids to all things. They must be at least ten years old and follow directions well. We stayed at a cabin called Sunset Falls which had a great view.
